The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) is the leading authority on children's mental illnesses. AACAP members actively research, diagnose, and treat psychiatric disorders affecting children, adolescents, and their families. As an organization, we uniquely understand this cause and share your passion for supporting children's mental health.
Your donation directly supports AACAP's Campaign for America's Kids (CFAK). CFAK's mission is to support innovative initiatives in advocacy, education, and research that improve access to mental health treatments for all children.
Launch research careers that promote quality mental health services and treatment for children.
By educating, encouraging, and providing the tools for students to join the field, AACAP tackles the current shortage of child psychiatrists, which impacts access to mental health services for children and families.
Stigma and the shortage of child psychiatrists means many children are currently unable to access mental health care. Help give a voice to those who can't stand up for themselves.
