The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Project (CAMHP) is pleased to announce its first student showcase on Thursday May 3rd, 2018 from 3:00 to 5:00pm. This celebratory showcase will mark the end of CAMHP’s inaugural year. It will provide students with the opportunity to present their own research findings pertaining to youth mental health to the CAMHP community. These talks and Q&A will be followed by an extended reception to all attendees.
This year’s student showcase will be in the form of a Data Blitz Symposium: a series of select student-led talks, each lasting 5-10 minutes in length. The talk should briefly summarize the justification, methods, and key findings from a student-led research study relevant to youth mental health. The goal of the Data Blitz is to provide students with the opportunity to articulate their research findings in a quick, approachable, and engaging manner. We will provide opportunity for Q&A following each talk.
