JCPP, is our internationally acclaimed publication, bringing together empirical research, clinical studies and reviews in order to advance how we understand and approach child and adolescent mental health. To celebrate the 60th Anniversary we will be broadcasting live from the Wellcome Collection, London, to an invited audience, hearing from some of the sector’s most respected figures. We’ll be looking back over the last six decades of JCPP, and importantly discussing what the future holds, and how we can all be part of the advancement of child and adolescent mental health.
