The Butabika Link is hosting the Second National CAMH Conference in Kampala at the end of March at the end of two UK Government funded training projects (2012-2017).

Thirty three Ugandan mental health and child health professionals will have completed the two year CAMH training programme, recently accredited by Mbarara University of Science and Technology as an Advanced Diploma in Child and Adolescent Mental Health.

In addition the Ministry of Health has developed a Policy for Child and Adolescent Mental Health in order to develop child and adolescent mental health services throughout Uganda.

The conference will host the launch of the Ugandan Policy for CAMH and includes international speakers in child mental health as well as rapidly increasing local expertise and projects completed by current trainees
