History of CICAMH Collaboration
The first Critical Issues in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CICAMH) Conference was held on March 12, 2016 at the AMN Healthcare Auditorium. CICAMH Conference Program Booklet 2016
The development and planning of the event began in summer 2015 when SDPA was invited and agreed to join our community mental health partners.
