Welcome to the Faculty of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry 2018 Conference.
On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the FCAP 2018 Conference to be held on Wednesday 17 – Saturday 20 October in Perth, Western Australia.
The Conference theme Metamorphosis: Transitions and Opportunities in Child and Adolescent Mental Health will examine different times of change for young people, including infancy and adolescence.
To help guide us through this, we are pleased to welcome both internationally renowned and local speakers, with a focus on clinical skills and an exciting social programme designed to showcase Perth.
We hope you will join us in Perth in October 2018.

Abstracts are invited for The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists’ Faculty of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Conference 2018.
The theme of the conference is “Metamorphosis: Transitions and Opportunities in Child and Adolescent Mental Health’’.
If you wish to submit an abstract for consideration by the Scientific Program Committee, you must also intend to register for the conference. Online submission is the only method of receipt of abstracts.
Abstract submission deadline 2018-05-25
Authors will be required to indicate their preferred presentation format when submitting an abstract. The available presentation types are:
An oral presentation is typically a 10– 20 minute oral presentation. The presentation will include time for questions.
A poster presentation constitutes a visual display of research projects. Your poster must not extend beyond the boundaries of your display board – one display board will be allocated per poster. The poster display will be an integral part of the program with dedicated times for delegates to interact with poster authors and ask questions. More information regarding the logistics of the poster presentations will be advised upon acceptance.
Combination Poster and Oral Presentation
Authors have the option to be considered for either an oral presentation or a poster presentation, or a combination of both. The Committee may recommend that a poster be accompanied by an oral presentation within the program or a proposed oral presentation would be better as a poster. This decision is at the discretion of the Committee.
Combined Symposium Presentation
A combined symposium presentation consists of a maximum of six individual presentations submitted by one author on behalf of the group, and under one common theme. Please ensure all information relating to each individual symposium presentation is included in the one abstract submitted. The standard time allocated per symposium is 90 minutes.
The FCAP 2018 Conference Scientific Program Committee are seeking papers that are clinically relevant to psychiatrists, paediatricians and other mental health professionals in the area of infant, child, adolescent and youth mental health. The following themes are broad and inclusive and may provide guidance for submission:
• Development and public health
• Growing psychiatrists
• Indigenous mental health
• Neurodevelopmental disorders, disability and neurobiology
• Perinatal and infant mental health
• Trauma and therapy
