Conference News

Call for Proposals is now open!

The 29th Annual Research & Policy Conference on Child, Adolescent, and Young Adult Behavioral Health will be held March 13 – 16, 2016 at the Hilton Tampa Downtown Hotel.

Be a Part of the Innovation!

The Children's Mental Health Reseach & Policy Conference was first held in 1988 and has continued each year, bringing together more than 500 participants to share dialogue about important issues such as health, education and welfare, share new knowledge, and identify challenges that remain for the field. As the field and issues have evolved, so too has our focus to expanding both age range and a broader area of topics.

The Research & Policy Conference on Child, Adolescent, and Young Adult Behavioral Health provides a forum where participants can:

  • Learn, inform, network, and discuss issues related to research, policy, and practice
  • Explore behavioral health topics from a systems and community perspective
  • Discover new research and policy ideas that are individualized, community-defined, evidence-based, culturally/linguistically competent, family-driven, and youth-guided
