ABOUT THE PRESENTATIONS:
CMHACY seeks 90-minute workshops for presentation on Thursday, May 16, 2019, and poster presentations for an impactful poster session on Wednesday evening May 15, 2019. The conference focuses on all systems serving children, young people and youth – education, child welfare, juvenile justice, mental health, probation, substance use disorder, First 5, everyone. It is for youth, families, direct care workers, managers, professionals, policymakers, and volunteers. We seek presentations that meet the continuing education needs of all. While some workshops may be complex and advanced, with data that supports the intended outcomes of a program/approach, we also look for workshops free of professional jargon and acronyms. Applications are due January 4, 2019.
The Poster Session is a recent addition to the conference. It’s a great opportunity for attendees to share their work in an informal setting and is a great venue for new presenters.
