The main idea of the RESME project (2012-2015) is to improve welfare and mental health of the children who lives in residential settings. In project we research the current system of residential child care and mental health services and practitioners’ professional competences. Research aims to identify the multi-professional work practices on the borderline between child care work and mental health treatment. The research results are used in designing and piloting the continuing educational course for practitioners in child welfare services. Developed education course aims to increase the multi-professional collaboration between professionals working on the borders of these systems, residential child care and mental health services.
