About Precision Child and Youth Mental Health Conference

With unprecedented potential to transform child and youth mental health, PCYMH is rapidly moving us towards precision care guided by data about each patient's unique genetic, biomarker, environmental, and lifestyle characteristics. Join us for a stimulating two days of discovery and discussion with like-minded colleagues in beautiful Ottawa, Canada's capital! Our virtual option (June 10 only) allows you to attend from anywhere in the world.
