The California Mental Health Advocates for Children & Youth conference is the most recognized and longest-standing conference in the state of California focused upon the social, emotional and behavioral health of children, youth and their families. Our annual conference is one of the state’s most powerful events for those interested in advocating and promoting the policies, programs, and practices that enhance the well-being of vulnerable children, youth and families.

About this Year's Conference

The theme of the 44th annual CMHACY Conference is
Mental Health is Everyone’s Business: Inclusive Conversations for Changing Times

CMHACY is a unique opportunity for attendees from multiple perspectives and backgrounds to meaningfully connect with one another while participating in interactive conversations on topics relevant to the mental wellness of youth and families. We aim to hold space for youth, advocates, parents, policymakers, and providers to ensure that voice and choice remains foundational to the conversations around California’s changing healthcare system. We believe that all voices need to be heard, all stories need to be told, and that we all must work together to keep our finger on the pulse of California’s rapidly changing mental and behavioral healthcare landscape.
