Research Center for Child Mental Development

Children’s mental issues, such as refusing to attend school, withdrawing socially, committing crimes (by juveniles 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 shedding 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.
