Events

We run a variety of events throughout the year to support the professional development of all those working to support the mental health of children and young people. Amongst our aims is the dissemination of information to bridge the gap between rigorous research and best practice in relation to child and adolescent mental health. One of the ways in which we do this is through our events, and we try to make these as accessible and affordable as is reasonably possible.

The events we organise are not profit-making, many are subsidised through our other commercial activities, without which they would not be able to run. As a charity, any surplus that we make is invested back into the business to benefit our Members and the sector. Members get a discounted rate and we hope you consider joining.
