The International Child Mental Health – Study Group (ICMH-SG) is committed to advancing cross-cultural research across various aspects of child and adolescent mental health (CAMH).

The ICMH-SG is a network of practitioners and researchers thinking globally, acting locally, sharing the same idea of equality, and inspiring others to deliver better cross-cultural research and practice in CAMH.

The mission of the ICMH-SG is to empower and engage people across the world to do cross-cultural research and deliver best practices in CAMH. Importantly, the ICMH-SG ensures the inclusion of children, adolescents, families, practitioners, researchers, and the public from undeveloped and developing world regions.

The vision of the ICMH-SG is improved CAMH practice and excellent cross-cultural CAMH research across the world.

The ICMH-SG is based on the values and a shared consensus of collaboration, commitment, trust, confidentiality, open communication, regorous research, and benefits to all its members, CAMH, and communities.
