The module describes how to develop a policy and plan using several sources of data: country information about the epidemiology of child and adolescent mental health problems, the existing financial and human resources available, the current service organisation and the views and attitudes of health workers. It then outlines the critical steps of formulating the vision, values, principles and the objectives of the policy, making use of an extensive consultation process with all stakeholders. In order to effectively implement the policy, a strategic plan should be developed, and guidance is provided on the key actions to be taken in this respect, including the formulation of strategies, associated activities, targets, indicators, resources and timeframes. Based on the latest evidence-based practice, the module provides a template that enables countries to address the comprehensive mental health needs of children and adolescents, across a range of sectors.
