IAYMH Virtual Conference Library

International Association of Youth Mental Health

Changing the way the global community thinks about young people and their mental health by ensuring that services are developmentally and age appropriate, and that young people have an active voice in determining what is best for them.

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.

The IAYMH hosts an International Biannual Conference that provides an opportunity to showcase current thinking and practice and builds on the vital contribution that young people themselves can make to transformations and reform. The IAYMH has produced a Virtual Conference Library through the generous support and partnership with Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health. We hope through this VCL to enable knowledge and ideas to be shared widely and promote a continued global conversation on youth mental health.

On this site you will be able to search by keyword or author in order to find the latest conference presentations and posters related to youth mental health presented at the IAYMH2013 in Brighton UK and the IAYMH2105 in Montral, Quebec, Canada.
