The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH) National Conferences
The Association raises awareness of developments within child and adolescent mental health through its medium of conferences, training events and meetings which target national as well as local needs.  
ACAMH hosts annual national day conferences, which highlight current topics, inform about best practice and evidence-based research and offer multi-disciplinary discussion forums.  The content of the conferences - academic as well as clinical - is designed to meet the needs both of the Association's members as well as those who are interested in these and linked issues.
Both day conferences are respected in the sector for the relevance of their themes, the high standard of the presentations and the quality of the speakers.  Recent topics have covered a wide spectrum, encompassing the popular topics such as autism and asperger's syndrome, dyslexia, depression, ADHD, cognitive behaviour therapy and attachment as well as the more specialist subject areas such as genetics or post traumatic stress disorder.
ACAMH's network of branches provides a framework of events which cater for the local audience.  These take the form of either full-day or half-day conferences or twilight meetings and some of these events attract in excess of 100 delegates, particularly in those areas where other course providers are limited.  The subject matter of conferences is frequently determined by feedback from our members or recognition of an area which deserves to be brought to the fore.  Events are open to both members and non-members, are either free or very reasonably priced and are always popular with those attending.
