We are excited to confirm that the 7th International Association for Youth Mental Health Conference will be held in Vancouver, Canada from 19-21 March, 2025. The theme of the conference is Turning the tide: Creating a global blueprint for prevention and integrated care in youth mental health.

We are now putting the call out for abstracts for this conference. Whether your experience of youth mental health is lived, loved, laboured or learned, or some combination of them all, it is your contribution that will make this a conference that moves youth mental health forward globally.

So, if you have some cutting-edge research, or have been part of changing things clinically, or have a story to tell about how young people have been, are, or should be a part of creating change in youth mental health we want to hear from you.

If you are part of creating or implementing innovative youth mental health policy or services, or responding to youth mental health needs in low resource settings, or part of a group figuring out how to involve and work with traditionally underserved communities, we want you to come and share your experiences at IAYMH2025. It is through bringing together the collective wisdom of our experience that we will be able to create a new global blueprint for youth mental health.

Professor Eóin Killackey
IAYMH 2025 Programme Committee Chair
