Children's mental issues,such as refusing to attend school, withdrawing
socially, committing crimes (by jubeniles of increasingly younger ages),
and their underlying difficulties including developmental disorders, have
attracted growing attention in recent years.
As a result, there is a strong social need for doctors who can draw
out the innermost feelings of such children and cure them from the perspective
of a specialist, and also for educators who understand and provide them
with appropriate care.
Founded with the purpose of sheeding light on children's mental as well
as psychological issues and conducting research and social activities for
their treatment and support, the Research Center for Child Mental Development
aims to provide solutions to such issues through cooperation from Osaka
University, Kanazawa University, Hamamatsu University School of Medicine,
and Chiba University.
