Child & Adolescent Mental Health Seminar Series: 'Effects of a multi-component menstrual health intervention on mental health symptoms and educational performance in Ugandan schools (MENISCUS): a cluster-randomised controlled trial'

The MENISCUS Trial is evaluating the impact of a multi-component menstrual health intervention in Ugandan secondary schools on girls’ education, health, and wellbeing. Many girls lack the knowledge, confidence, facilities and materials needed to manage periods safely and with dignity. Improving menstrual health not only has immediate benefits to their wellbeing, but can lead to long-term improvements to women’s education, health and development.

This is a hyrbid event, held in the Department of Psychiatry’s Seminar Room and online (Zoom).
