Between October 23 and 28, members of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) gathered for a vibrant, hybrid virtual/in-person annual meeting in New York City. Outgoing president Dr. Warren Ng's initiative “CAPture Belonging” has focused on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging efforts, which were reflected in the program schedule. Incoming President, Dr. Tami Benton, will focus on elevating child psychiatry leadership and partnerships for the transformation of children’s mental health care. 

California Governor Gavin Newsom and First Partner Jennifer Seibel Newsom were presented with the AACAP “Catchers in the Rye Award” for significant contributions to society through support of child and adolescent psychiatry.

Congratulations to Dr. Alissa Rogol, CAP co-chief fellow, and Amelia Abbott-Frey, PGY-2, both recipients of AACAP Educational Outreach Program Awards. This award provides an opportunity for CAP residents to be exposed to the field of child and adolescent psychiatry, including research opportunities, access to mentors, and various networking opportunities. 

Stanford had a robust showing at this year's meeting, with faculty and trainees in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences participating in a long list of symposiums, talks, and poster presentations (see linked topics below for details). Dr. Jennifer Derenne also serves as a Councilor-at-large for the AACAP Council.
