More than 550 mental health professionals and students from across the nation will convene Feb. 5-7 for the 2020 Miami International Child & Adolescent Mental Health (MICAMH) Conference. They will address some of today’s pressing concerns in youth mental health, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, vaping, trauma, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and more.

The leading interdisciplinary conference presents state-of-the-art, evidence-based prevention and treatment interventions for mental health and educational problems in children and adolescents.

The conference will address the psychological well-being among refugee and immigrant youth and families and the need for contextually-relevant and culturally-specific trauma-informed interventions for youth exposed to community violence.
