President’s Message

It is an incredible privilege to assume the Presidency of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry as we redefine our role as a national organization committed to supporting our members and advocating for the mental health of children, youth and families. I am honoured to work with an exceptional Board comprised of Regional Representatives and an Executive dedicated to advancing excellence in care, education, advocacy and collaboration with other professional organizations.

During my presidency, I am committed to bringing to life the goals of our strategic plan: ensuring the fiscal health of our organization; increasing the continuing professional development opportunities available for our members; advocating for child, youth and family mental health care; and building partnerships that help us achieve these goals.

I look forward to working with our members, the Executive, and the Board to grow our organization and its influence as the voice for child and youth mental health in Canada.

Yours sincerely,

Jana Davidson, MD, FRCPC
