Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health Seeks Presenters for National Conference

by Aliyah DeVille

Want to present at the children, youth and family advocacy conference of the year? The National Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health (FFCMH) is looking for presenters for their 23rd Annual Conference, which will be held November 16-18 in Washington D.C.

This year’s conference theme is “Sustaining and Expanding Excellence in Children’s Mental Health Services and Supports.”

Potential conference presenters should seek to answer two questions: (1) What are genuine elements of excellence in children’s mental health in 2012? (2) What creative, promising and proven strategies and approaches can we rely on to expand excellence to children, youth, and families, in all corners of our nation beyond 2012?

Presenters must be able to offer content that will expand the knowledge of already highly qualified participants. All presentations should highlight best practices and include replicable solutions.

The conference theme emphasizes conference workshops and the use of poster sessions that help welcome new families, professionals, and stakeholders to the many vital building blocks of excellence. Presentations that reflect the state of the art in positive practices and share promising innovations in services and supports are also welcome. Other possible topics of presentation can be found on the proposal submission page.

Those who are interested in presenting are asked to submit proposals by June 29. Workshop, poster sessions, and 3-hour intensive pre-conference proposals are invited for submission.

Questions? Visit the Federation website for more information and to submit a proposal for presentation or contact Nicole Marshall, Project & Logistics Manager at or 240-406-1492.
