An initiative, in collaboration with Consulta Dr. Carlos Chiclana, to provide parents and students with comprehensive care.

Data on the need and specific objectives
Project developed by Fuenllana
We face many personal, relationship, economic, social and health difficulties. In addition, the COVID pandemic has caused an increase in psychological and psychiatric symptoms. Thus, several studies report that in Spain, during the pandemic, 32.7% have felt down, depressed or hopeless, with a high consumption of psychopharmaceuticals (9.8%). 85.7% of parents perceived changes in their children’s mental health, mainly with difficulties in concentration and irritability.
In addition, many parents need to combine teleworking with childcare, supervision of academic tasks and without the help of other caregivers, which has increased the difficulties in cohabitation.
According to some studies, more than 20% of minors present during childhood some type of mental pathology that requires specialized attention.
In the last year, primary care pediatric services and mental health referrals have seen an increase in consultations for anxiety, obsessive-compulsive symptoms, depression, self-injury and somatization. In addition, eating disorders have doubled, are more severe and require more admissions than before the pandemic.
Pediatricians and mental health professionals have urged official institutions to get involved in promoting and implementing preventive measures in child and adolescent mental health, and to provide and improve care resources for this population group. The consequences of not addressing mental health conditions extend into adulthood, affecting both physical and mental health and limiting opportunities to lead a full life as an adult.

The main objective of this unit is to help the students and parents of the school from a different perspective, in an environment close to them. This help can involve not only different mental health professionals (psychologists, therapists, family counselors, psychiatrists, etc.), but also teachers, tutors, other families, etc., and the family itself, all in an integrated way and with a collaborative strategy.
The aim is to energize the home as a fundamental institution for the development of the person, to integrate the family in the educational process and to help the child and adolescent in their development as a person, which involves not only intellectual formation but also the formation of character, affectivity, communication, personal, couple, parent-child relationships, emotional regulation and a wide range of tools that will enable them to meet the challenges they face in a changing society.
