Hi. I am Abdulbaghi Ahmad,
Child Psychiatrist and Associate Professor of Uppsala University in Sweden.
And I am IACAPAP Ambassador,
the Founding Director of Metin Health House for
Child Mental Health in the whole Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
I'm going to give you an account on child mental health,
a developmental approach from Kurdistan where we have been introducing
child mental health as
a scientific and academic subject for the first time in the region.
We will speak a little bit about the definition of
health in order to understand that connection to mental health,
generally speaking, and to child mental health.
The best definition of health nowadays is according to that WHO's definition.
A state of complete physical, mental,
and social well-being not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
