Over the last 50 years, children’s mental health scientists have made enormous contributions to society, but we need to ensure that the next generation of scientists are equipped to solve today’s challenges.
The Future Directions Forum delivers interactive professional development workshops that give attendees the tools they need to become strategic, successful scientists. Don’t miss this chance to join other early career scientists who are moving the field of child and adolescent mental health forward! Register today to attend this unique event!
