At the Centre for Child Mental Health, we are genuinely excited to share that we will be honouring distinguished authors, clinicians, and researchers who have devoted themselves to improving infant, child, and teenage mental health. Join us in celebrating these remarkable contributors in 2023/2024 as we continue to strive for progress in child mental health.

Handpicked for their profound influence on what we now know heals troubled young minds, they have all, in their own original way, advanced our knowledge of what brings alleviation of distress and transformational change for vulnerable and traumatised children and young people.

There's one presentation day left in this series of live conference events, each featuring four distinguished speakers. Although each event can be enjoyed on its own, we highly recommend attending all three to fully immerse yourself in the experience. Our speakers are experts in their fields and are eager to share their knowledge.

We are honoured to be a part of this celebration and look forward to sharing with you the impactful work of these incredible leaders. So be part of history in its making.

A must for anyone passionate about making that vital change to young lives.
