The San Diego Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is one of four regional organizations of the California Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, under the umbrella of the larger national organization. Our membership is comprised of child and adolescent psychiatrists, including resident and fellow trainees, throughout San Diego County.

From the hugely successful We Can’t Wait Conference that brings in over 600 attendees and nationally renowned speakers, to smaller events that serve the needs of early career psychiatrists and trainees, we strive to be the professional and educational home for our members.

We are also involved on a county, state and national level in advocacy for improved quality of care for our patients, collaboration with other mental health and medical providers, and continuing to advance the field of child and adolescent psychiatry .
