The interest and benefit of the project for your country
State or local government established budget and public social care and mental health services for children institutions are dominating in Lithuania, which are obliged to investigate complex child care and health care service needs, plan the provision of services (including the initiatives of individual non-governmental organizations), and follow the inter-institutional and inter-professional co-operation principles. There is still a lack of private initiative examples, thus a possibility to train practitioners and share good experience while organizing and attending national/international conferences, seminars, etc. may help to overcome the obstacles, strengthen practitioners professional competences, and put both child care and mental health systems into better understanding and efficient collaboration.
