Washington, DC
Surgeon General
The Surgeon General's National Conference on Children's Mental Health is being organized by a Federal interdepartmental coordinating committee and will represent a broad range of children's mental health issues.  The purpose "will be to engage families, professionals, and scientists in a meaningful dialogue about issues involved in identifying, recognizing, and referring children with mental health problems for appropriate, evidence-based treatments or services."  Because of space limitations, the conference will be by invitation.  A web site has been set up to gather input from interested parties: see their web site at http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/cmh/.
