Child Labour Tool | Psychosocial Impacts of Child Labour

The Alliance

Child labour can seriously affect children’s social and emotional development and wellbeing. Different aspects of children’s work can cause harm to their psychosocial wellbeing. The impact of psychosocial hazards can cause significant stress, and if they are not mitigated, children can develop mental health conditions that require specialised support. Children in the worst forms of child labour (WFCL) particularly often experience extremely stressful events such as separation from their parents, injury, sexual violence and other traumatic situations.
