Excerpt

On September 18 and 19, 2000, the Surgeon General's Conference on Children's Mental Health: Developing a National Action Agenda was held in Washington, DC. Three hundred participants were invited, representing a broad cross-section of mental health stakeholders, including youth and family members, professional organizations and associations, advocacy groups, faith-based practitioners, clinicians, educators, healthcare providers, and members of the scientific community and the healthcare industry. This conference enlisted their help in developing specific recommendations for a National Action Agenda on Children's Mental Health. A related meeting on Psychopharmacology for Young Children: Clinical Needs and Research Opportunities, was held by the National Institute of Mental Health and the Food and Drug Administration on October 2nd and 3rd, 2000. Recommendations from these two meetings formed the basis of this national action agenda. Action steps reflect the consensus recommendations of the participants at the national conference.
