Second International Youth Mental Health Conference
The Second International Youth Mental Health Conference will be held at Brighton Dome, Brighton, UK, between September 30 and October 2, 2013.
Adolescence and early adulthood is a critical time for personal development. The major threat to this comes from mental ill health with 75% of mental and substance use disorders emerging by age 25. Latest research reveals the complex interplay of genes, environment, psychological and social factors underpinning the development of these conditions in young people. These conditions can have a devastating impact on young people’s potential to establish their own independence and goals. Yet most of these conditions are very treatable and, if caught early, most people will make a good recovery. Early access and engagement is crucial but traditional health services are not youth friendly. Major gaps exist between adolescent and adult services – just at the stage when early intervention could be most effective.
New models are emerging of youth mental health services that embrace therapeutic optimism and incorporate the principals of prevention, early intervention, and recovery. They place young people and their families at the centre of decisions about service and policy development. Youth-friendly accessibility, engagement, and age-appropriate interventions are key to their success.
‘Young people at the forefront of reshaping services’ is a conference that aims to improve our understanding of youth mental heath, identify gaps in service provision, promote more effective interventions and models of care. This conference will celebrate the vital contribution that young people and their families can make to this field.
• Young people technology and their wellbeing
• Youth participation and active engagement in programs and research
• Service reform and innovation
• Role of families and carers
• Innovations in treatment and interventions

Complexity: Researching Alcohol and Other Drugs in a Multiple World
21-23 August 2013 Aarhus, Denmark
The last decade has seen the idea of complexity gain force in social science and epidemiological research. As social problems of all kinds prove less amenable to change than is sometimes suggested by the reductionist demands of orthodox positivist approaches, theory and method have turned to ways of articulating the elusive, uncertain and complex.
For some, such as the science and technology studies scholars Annemarie Mol and John Law (2002), complexity means multiplicity rather than unity, realities rather than reality, distinct but overlapping worlds, logics and orders. Implicated, too, are questions about the relation between order and chaos, and the validity of binaries of any kind, including that of simplicity and complexity itself.
This conference offers a forum in which the issues and dilemmas of complexity in alcohol and other drug research can be explored. It welcomes research based on quantitative and qualitative methods, and encourages innovative use of methods, concepts and theoretical approaches. Following the conference, Contemporary Drug Problems, an interdisciplinary quarterly and one of the driving forces behind the conference, will publish a special issue featuring selected papers from the conference.
