dc.description.abstractBackground: Worldwide 10-20% of children and adolescents experience mental disorders (MD). Half of all mental illnesses begin by the age of 14 and three-quarters by mid-20s. As adolescents move from child to adult-centered care, they should be encouraged to implement a proactive mental health strategy. Pediatrician have the potential to be an important gateway to MHP. The healthcare coordination may be affected by contextual constraints such as lack of time and the reluctance of the adolescents to seek help for MD. Adopting a resilience framework, we aimed to develop a psychoeducational toolkit to optimize the contact between the adolescents and their pediatrician. Methods: We first collected pediatricians needs in a focus group and systematically searched in the literature for components of interventions that are effective in the MHP. We selected a previously developed toolkit, that we aimed to optimize and adapt culturally. The adapted toolkit was then evaluated by adolescents in two focus groups. We took their feedback into account when finalizing the toolkit. Results: The psychoeducational toolkit “Take care of yourself” is a resource for adolescents to recognize risks for MD. It comprises ten topics that are central to MHP: myths and facts about MD, dealing with stress, love and loss, unhealthy relationships, separation, grief, online addiction, drugs, helping others, confidentiality, rights and obligations and useful websites. Analyses of the focus groups showed that adolescents and pediatricians evaluated the toolkit as appealing and helpful. Conclusions: This toolkit provides a resource for adolescents to address mental health problems. It aims to increase MHP in PPC and to contribute to the destigmatization of MD. In a next step, we plan to test the effectiveness of this psychoeducational tool.de_CH
