International Association for Youth Mental Health Conference

14 Mar 2019

Abstract submissions are open now 

It's back! Bigger than ever before and this year the International Association for Youth Mental Health (IAYMH) Conference is happening in Brisbane from 26th-28th October.

As part of each conference the call goes out to young people to showcase some of the incredible work been doing in the mental health sector.

If you are thinking about presenting some work you have done in the youth mental health space at the 5th IAYMH conference, you’ll need to submit an abstract to be considered. Traditionally, abstracts are a way of summarising the key points/areas of a research project. While they’re often used for research, this doesn’t always have to be the case, and they can be used to summarise other types of projects as well.

Submitting an abstract to present at a conference can be exciting, but also a bit daunting- especially if you’ve never done it before! So the IAYMH team have created these guidelines to help.

The submission due date closes 
March 18th, so don't delay. Once you're ready to go, submit your entry here.

IAYMH conference bursaries

The IAYMH is committed to the active involvement and participation of young people as part of its charter to change the way the global community think about young people’s mental health. As with previous conferences, conference bursaries are provided to assist young people to attend and participate in the conference. There are two types of bursaries available to Australian young people:

  1. A conference and accommodation bursary
    This bursary covers the conference registration fee and two nights of accommodation near the conference venue

  2. A conference bursary
    This bursary covers the conference registration fee for the conference
