Member Services Forum 3 (open)
Mental Health Advocacy Training
Take a bite out of the Big Apple and join AACAP at the Annual Meeting as we discuss advocacy efforts on behalf of child and adolescent psychiatry. In this session, you will:

•    Learn how to advocate at the federal, state, and local levels

•    Receive a policy update on federal and state child and adolescent psychiatry issues

•    Hear from a New York state legislator about their policy efforts for children’s mental health

AACAP’s Department of Government Affairs provides an overview of AACAP’s legislative agenda and the progress our advocacy efforts continue to make on Capitol Hill and in state capitals. They present materials and strategies to educate and engage members of Congress, state legislators, and the media, as well as share policy details necessary to deliver your message effectively. Attend this session to partner with AACAP as we build our grassroots network and advocate together for children’s mental health.
