Abstract

Historically, youth mental health has had a quiet voice in public fora. However there has been an increase in the number of leaders representing the child and adolescent mental health and addictions sector in the IIMHL over the past couple of years, including the inclusion of young leaders in 2007. In fact, it has been more than inclusion; we have had the opportunity to speak to hundreds of international mental health leaders and impact lots of people through what we do in our various roles. It is empowering, a privilege, and a responsibility to represent and present what's important for young people who utilise mental health services.
