A group of several countries has recently established the IAYMH which is an Incorporated Body in the State of Victoria, Australia and they have established a Foundation Executive Committee led by President: Professor Pat McGorry—Executive Director, Orygen Youth Health, Melbourne, Australia. Other people come from Australia, Ireland, Canada and the UK.
They have been lucky enough to receive support from a number of Foundation Supporters; Headstrong, headspace, Commonwealth Government of Australia, Young and Well CRC , Orygen Youth Health research Centre and the Inspire Foundation. One of the next big steps from a governance perspective will be to hold their inaugural AGM and to elect Office Bearers. This will be held at the Conference in October 2013 and more information will be circulated to members.
The IAYMH have launched a web site www.iaymh.org in March and opened the formal process for individuals to and organisations to join the IAYMH.
