We are pleased to announce the fifth IAYMH Conference will be held from 26–28 October 2019 in Brisbane, Australia.
Building on our inspiring 2017 Conference in Dublin, IAYMH 2019 will bring together people from across the globe who are passionate about working together to support and improve the mental health and wellbeing of young people.
The conference will connect young people and their families, researchers, practitioners, policy makers and more to drive a unified effort towards global and lasting change across the sector.
We are thrilled that IAYMH 2019 will be held in Australia. So much has changed in youth mental health since the first IAYMH Conference in Melbourne back in 2010 – there's been incredible momentum and progress across the world, but so much remains to be done. Far too many young people fail to get what they need, when they need it.
IAYMH 2019 will focus on strengthening international connections to make real and positive change for all young people. As with all IAYMH conferences, they will play an integral role in sharing their skills, voices and experiences – and will be involved in all aspects of planning and decision-making for Brisbane. The call for submissions for youth co-conveners will be made shortly; make sure you keep an eye out for this and share across your networks.
Please mark these dates in your diaries, and visit the IAYMH 2019 website to register your interest. We look forward to welcoming you to Australia for another unique and inspiring event next October.
