Children and adolescents are living in a world affected by continuous transitions. A phenomenon with a double meaning: it implies a life of change in a constantly evolving environment, as well as a possible a break of balance: a loss of equilibrium. Transition, the leading theme of the ESCAP 2017 Congress, contains many aspects that are relevant to youth mental health.

Not having a budget for video reports at the 2017 ESCAP Congress was no obstacle to ESCAP president Stephan Eliez. He picked up his videocam at the Geneva faculty – meant for training purposes – and recorded a series of conversations with congress lecturers by himself. "This was done on the fly at a great congress", he says.
