The 2022 Forum will be held on June 9 – 11, 2022! Poster Presentation provides attendees with the option to submit an abstract for presentation during our Forum Science Social. Attendees may submit more than one abstract for presentation. We will accept abstract submissions until 11:59 pm (EDT) on March 18, 2022. If your abstract is accepted for presentation we will prompt you via email to upload your presentation into our digital system, saving you both time and money!
Benefits of Presenting at the Forum Science Social

We will review abstract submissions submitted on or before 11:59pm on Friday, March 18, 2022. Review decisions on abstracts will be communicated on a rolling basis between April 1, 2022.
Policy on Forum Registration
Presenters at the Forum must register and pay the Forum’s registration fee. There is an early bird discount for the registration fee. Onsite registration fees will increase relative to the early fee. Registration will open in early 2022.
Abstract Review Process
Abstracts must describe a complete representation of your work and cannot be a "work in progress" that has yet to yield discernible findings. We only accept abstracts that report findings from empirical work (e.g., experiments, studies leveraging qualitative approaches, controlled trials, archival database studies, psychometric studies, controlled observations, field studies, and meta-analytic reviews). At each Forum, four leaders in mental health research give addresses on innovative areas of research. Thus, we will be especially interested in abstracts that report research in these areas (i.e., for 2022: racism/discrimination; lay health workers; intervention science; sexual identities). However, we welcome abstracts on all research relevant to mental health, including work across the lifespan (e.g., young children, adolescents, adults)!
Detailed Information on Presentation Format and Process
Presentations will all be in a digital poster format created using Microsoft PowerPoint© software. Poster sessions will occur during our Forum Science Social. If your abstract is accepted for presentation we will prompt you via email to upload your presentation into our system for visual production (i.e., you will not have to print your poster in paper form).
