What is IACAPAP?
The International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions’ (IACAPAP) mission is to advocate for the promotion of the mental health and development of children and adolescents through policy, practice and research. The IACAPAP also promotes the study, treatment, care and prevention of mental and emotional disorders and disabilities involving children, adolescents and their families with emphasis on collaboration among the professions of child and adolescent psychiatry, psychology, social work, paediatrics, public health, nursing, education, social sciences and other relevant disciplines.
To achieve its mission, IACAPAP has developed and adopted the guidelines and principles of Ethics in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. IACAPAP also adopts Declarations & Statements, Position Papers and Monographs to help child and adolescent mental health professionals in their work. It promotes its activities through its bi-annual Bulletin.
Research from IACAPAP
There is a significant lack of research into child and adolescent mental health in low-GDP nations, especially when compared to that in the developed world. In particular, Africa represents unique challenges and opportunities, with a very young population, many of whom live in exceptionally difficult circumstances. To address this lack of research, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation approved a grant for “Building Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CAMH) capacity in Africa”, to create a cadre of professional researchers in the region. Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health is delighted to publish the first fruits of their research in this thematic series on ‘Child psychiatry in Africa’.
