About us 

The Faculty exists to promote, through the work of its members, the mental wellbeing of young people and their families. By contributing to and using an established knowledge base to inform practice:

 

  • By promoting the training of medical students, doctors in training, and substantively employed psychiatrists.
  • By acting as a forum for the exchange of experience and research.
  • By promoting the developmental perspective, and the importance of family functioning in mental health within the wider College functions.
  • By influencing public policies in appropriate directions.
  • By promoting mental health awareness through working with the media and offering information directly to the public.
  • By organising regular national conferences and local meetings to promote professional development, clinical education and peer networking opportunities.
