The Third International Youth Mental Health Conference – Transformations: Next Generation Youth Mental Health. #IAYMH2015

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 #IAYMH2013 in Brighton, England, #IAYMH2015 was held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and focussed 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. The Conference was an opportunity to showcase current thinking and practice that have emerged since 2013 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 for participants to revise. We hope through this VCL to enable knowledge and ideas to be shared widely and promote a continued global conversation on youth mental health.
