ACAMH Hubs refer to our Branches, Special Interest Groups (SIGS), and affiliated International Hubs across the globe.


Our branches are the driving force behind our grassroots activity by staging events, promoting our work, and providing insights at a local level. They provide a sounding board for our national activities and act as a powerful voice in campaigning and championing our strategic objectives. Branches have regular committee meetings to discuss innovative ideas, topical issues, and events for their region, which feeds into our national and international programme with fresh ideas and opinions. We are incredibly proud to have such a dedicated network of volunteers to run our branches. Without their efforts, ACAMH could not continue to operate at the forefront of child and adolescent mental health research and dissemination.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are the place to go for a comprehensive body of knowledge that deals with specific mental health issues. The work of the SIGs is invaluable and we want more ACAMH members, and non-members to become involved. Each SIG comprises of knowledgable, passionate, and engaging people. SIGs provide a key ACAMH resource that is the basis for some excellent content comprising blogs, podcasts, best practice, and events. If you are interested in establishing a SIG, do please email for more details.
