The 30th Annual Research & Policy Conference on Child, Adolescent, and Young Adult Behavioral Health will be held March 5 – 8, 2017 at the Hilton Tampa Downtown Hotel.
The 2017 conference will mark the 30th year that the Department of Child & Studies at the University of South Florida in Tampa has hosted a conference focused on cutting edge research and best policy practices for child mental health. Since 1988, the annual conference has brought together 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 a broader area of topics.
We are currently working with our co-sponsors on developing topics for 2017. 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.
