You BELONG at ACRC’s Annual Conference!

 

ACRC’s 68th Annual Conference, Right Care, Right Place, Right Time: Revolutionizing the Children’s Continuum of Care, will be held May 6-9, 2024. With global attention focused on the urgent, often unmet, behavioral and mental health needs of children, we seek to elevate what is working and re-envision how children and families access care.

The Association of Children’s Residential and Community Services (ACRC), founded in 1956, is an international organization focused on best practices and innovation in the care and treatment of children and their families. ACRC envisions youth and families thriving in their homes and communities with uncompromised access to high-quality residential and community-based interventions in a robust continuum of care. We support the work of experts in the field of child and youth behavioral health and mental wellbeing, including provider organizations, researchers, and public agencies across the United States and in several countries.

ACRC typically welcomes 600+ in-person and 1000+ virtual attendees from almost every state in the United States, with a smaller percentage attending from around the world. Conference attendees are practitioners, clinicians administrators, executive directors, evaluators, lived experts, researchers, students, program managers, supervisors, policymakers, model developers, and innovators who support quality and effectiveness in mental and behavioral health services to children, youth, and families. Cross-sector content applies to child welfare, juvenile justice, education, and mental and behavioral health leaders interested in research, policy, and practice.
