dc.description.abstractIntroduction: Many mental disorders develop during childhood, with an estimated 10-20% of children affected, and they often persist into adulthood. As mental disorders are often recognized delayed or not at all, mental health promotion and the early detection of mental illness in childhood are relevant public health tasks. Pediatric practices are a particularly suitable setting for such efforts are as they do have regular and direct contact with most children. This project therefore aimed to develop materials to raise parents' awareness of children's mental health and provide specific suggestions for mental health promotion and screening for mental health problems. Methods: A systematic literature review in the field of mental health promotion, clinical psychology and positive psychology on life skills and resilience revealed several effective concepts. In a participatory process with psychiatrists and pediatricians, ten concepts were selected: self-esteem, self-efficacy, problem solving skills, optimism, emotion regulation, recreation, family climate, nature, offline-activities, and peer support. In a preliminary evaluation of parents' perspective on a parent-brochure, 74 parents of 6-12-year-old kids filled in two online-questionnaires on the perceived relevance and usefulness of the ten concepts and the respective behavioral suggestions; one right after learning about the recommendations and one four weeks later. Results: First analysis show that parents perceive the recommendations as highly relevant and useful at both measurement time points and that they integrated many of them in their everyday family life. Conclusions: Resource-oriented suggestions on the promotion of mental health in children seem to offer a non-stigmatizing way to address mental health topics in the pediatric practice. In a next step, we plan to field-test the evaluation and uptake of the accompanying information brochure by pediatricians.de_CH
