Abstract: Low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) are faced with disproportionately high levels of unmet child mental health needs. This study explored through interviews the perspectives of 17 inter-agency service stakeholders from Brazil, Indonesia, Kenya, Pakistan, Rwanda and Turkey on existing supports and challenges. Four themes emerged on the holistic nature of children’s mental health needs linked with disadvantage; limited resources and skilled workforce; stigma; and strategies for future implementation, including awareness, parental engagement, skills-based programmes and cultural adaptation. Stakeholder input is essential in conceptualizing, developing and evaluating culturally appropriate interventions for vulnerable children in LMIC.
