3rd International Conference on Youth Mental Health
October 8-10, 2015 - Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Registration and the Call for Abstracts for the 3rd International Conference on Youth Mental Health: Next Generation Youth Mental Health is now live!

New models are emerging in the youth mental health field that embrace therapeutic optimism and incorporate the principals of prevention, early intervention, and recovery. They place young people and their families at the centre of decisions about service and policy development. Youth-friendly accessibility, engagement, and age-appropriate interventions are key to their success.

Building on the highly success and momentum from IAYMH 2013 in Brighton, England, Transformations will focus on how we make the transition from traditional mental health service models to the next generation of programs and services that will better meet the needs of young people and emerging adults. This conference will be an opportunity to showcase current thinking and practice that have emerged since 2013 and will build on the vital contribution that young people made to the conference through an even more robust youth engagement program.

This conference provides an opportunity for health professionals, youth workers, educators, policy makers, young people and family members to come together and learn about new and emerging developments that are striving to make changes that impact globally.

Register before June 19th 2015 to avail of Earlybird Rates. Call for Abstracts will close on April 7th 2015.
