Conference News

Call for Proposals opens August 28, 2015!

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.

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 expand both age range and broader area of topics.

We are currently working with our co-sponsors on developing topics for 2016. As a general guideline, proposals submitted for consideration should focus on “research that is usable” to improve service systems, policies, workforce development, and practice for child, adolescent, and young adult behavioral health.
