Cooperation and support
CWIN thanks FORUT in Norway for their continuous support, and Programme Director Staale Stavrum in FORUT is also very happy for the MoU signed in Nepal.
-This constitutes a very significant improvement in the services for young people in Nepal, Stavrum says.
-Mental health challenges manifest differently in adolescents as opposed to with children and adults. We can now open a ward at the Mental Hospital Lagankhel in Katmandu with assessement and treatment specifically directed towards adolescents.
