    Child and Adolescent Mental Health Project (CAMHP) Student Showcase

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Project (CAMHP) is pleased to announce its second student showcase on Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019 from 3:00 to 5:00pm. This celebratory showcase will mark the end of CAMHP’s second year. It will provide students with the opportunity to present their own research findings pertaining to youth mental health to the CAMHP community. These talks and Q&A will be followed by an extended reception to all attendees. 

Talk Format:

This year’s student showcase will be in the form of a Data Blitz Symposium: a series of select student-led talks, each lasting 5-10 minutes in length. The talk should briefly summarize the justification, methods, and key findings from a student-led research study relevant to youth mental health. The goal of the Data Blitz is to provide students with the opportunity to articulate their research findings in a quick, approachable, and engaging manner. We will provide opportunity for Q&A following each talk.

Abstract Submission Instructions:

We welcome abstract submissions from any doctoral and masters students at TC who have research findings from EITHER an ongoing or completed study pertaining to child and adolescent mental health. To submit your abstract, please visit:
