Greetings from Brazil!

We want to invite IACAPAP members and professionals interested in child and adolescent mental health and development from all over the world to join the 26th World Congress of IACAPAP, which will be held in Rio de Janeiro in May 2024.

We will bring together international experts from different areas of child and adolescent mental health to discuss discoveries and new avenues in the field, pushing the limits of the current knowledge. With the congress theme “Child development, mental health challenges and the future of nations” we will also bring together professionals from complementary fields, such as mental health, education, economics, justice, policymakers, and members from civil society, to strengthen their knowledge and connections supporting the understanding that nations will only prosper if their children and adolescents can thrive.

This will be the first IACAPAP Congress to be held in Latin America. Brazil is a wonderful country, with "no shortage of grandeur” as has been frequently said. It offers warm people, rich culture, the greatest biodiversity on the planet, and an efficient infrastructure for tourism. The Congress will be the perfect opportunity to congregate colleagues from the region and strengthen our field locally, and also to establish new collaborations and connections with colleagues from all over the world. Delegates will benefit from a broad and thought-provoking scientific program and experience a carefully planned rich social and cultural program.

We look forward to meeting you in Rio de Janeiro!

Dear colleagues and friends of the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions, It is our pleasure to effusively welcome you all to our 2024 congress that will take place for the first time in Latin America. We are sure this meeting will be an invaluable opportunity for learning, exchange knowledge and experiences, find old and make new friends. The atmosphere and beauty of Rio de Janeiro and the warmth of its people make this city one of the best places worldwide to have a meeting like ours. Never before has it been so necessary to understand the needs of our children and adolescents suffering from mental disorders, the multiple roots of these disorders affecting their development and to jointly explore treatments that are effective and make sense to the youths. This is a time for finding solutions together. For this reason, we proposed a meeting where people from different areas interested in child mental health and development will have space and voice. We are eager to have you in Rio with us!

We consider it a brilliant occasion for Latin American colleagues, taking into account that the best exponents of the specialty will be present, which will give us the opportunity to make known the characteristics - and sometimes uniqueness - of the child an adolescent mental health situation in our countries, always seeking better health for our children. Needless to say that to the high professional level are added the attractions of a city as beautiful as Rio de Janeiro.
