2015 Virtual Conference Library

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.

On this site you will be able to search by keyword or author in order to find the latest conference presentations and posters related to youth mental health presented at the Third International Youth Mental Health Conference – Transformations: Next Generation Youth Mental Health.

The International Declaration on Youth Mental Health

On 2nd October the International Declaration on Youth Mental Health was officially launched at the 2nd International Conference on Youth Mental Health in Brighton, England.

 

The launch represented a significant milestone for those involved in the youth mental health movement. It was the culmination of three years of work to produce the Declaration since it was first proposed at a Youth Mental Health Summit in Killarney, Ireland in May 2010. The launch of the Declaration was also accompanied by a call to action. The message was simple: use the Declaration to leverage for investment and innovation to develop meaningful and responsive youth mental health services across the globe.

 

The Declaration sets out 11 measurable targets to be achieved in the development of youth mental health services over the next 10 years. They are minimum standards for mental health services for young people and we must work together to ensure that these minimum standards are met.  

 

You can play a part in the global movement of change. We urge you and your organisations to endorse the Declaration and to take action now. Action to achieve each target is possible at every level and clinicians, budget holders, service planners, policy makers and politicians all have a part to play in ensuring that the Declaration targets are met. Meeting these targets will mean that all young people and their families will be able to access high quality youth mental health services and to avail of the intervention and support they need when they need it.

IAYMH launches the Virtual Conference Library from the IAYMH2013 Conference.

This Virtual Conference Library has been developed by Orygen Youth Health Research Centre in partnership with the IAYMH with the express aim of ensuring that Conference delegates and others unable to attend the event can have access to the latest information presented in Brighton on youth mental health. Through this library all of the Conference Presenters, who have agreed to having their presentation recorded are able to disseminate their latest work, whether it be in the domain of service, clinical or research innovation to a much wider audience.

The main aim of the VCL is to ensure that knowledge is shared widely and promotes a global conversation on youth mental health and that as a result it optimises the use of evidence-based practice and in doing so improve the quality of life to those young people experiencing mental health problems and their families.

You can now visit the VCL and  access  the great wealth of info that was shared at iaymh2013
