Abstract

Our communities are changing, and we need to look at its impact on our children and adolescents. How families interact with their children and the attachment experiences thus created, are important factors that have an effect on child and adolescent development. The quality of these experiences are in turn influenced by broader community level factors. These need to be taken into consideration in the prevention of mental health issues and in managing psychiatric disorders. Both formal community level interventions, as well as informal promotion of positive community influences are needed.
