The Conference brings together leaders from around the world who are dedicated to creating positive change in youth mental health. At the core of that change is young people. Through youth engagement at every possible level, IAYMH is working towards making sure that the Conference empowers young people to make a difference. This will be the 4th IAYMH Conference to take place and we are seeing more and more young people who are eager to share their learning, enrich their understanding and contribute to the positive moves being made in youth mental health

It’s rare to meet a young person without their own mobile phone so I hope we’re soon going to move beyond the idea of telling people to “go and get help” and completely redesign the outdated mental healthcare services that we subject Patients and Carers to.
