What are the ESCAP divisions?

ESCAP has established three separate divisions, in which the board and the executive committees can appoint working groups and task forces. Each have their own aims and objectives but ultimately the division efforts amalgamate to drive the society's aim and objectives forward so ESCAP becomes the leader for child and adolescent psychiatry in Europe.

Below are our three divisions where you'll find their current projects and articles addressing specific issues. 

Academic Division

The role of the academic division is to act as a forum for an exchange of scientific research and to promote education and training, especially research training, in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry and mental health.

Clinical Division

The role of the clinical division is to promote the quality of professional work and activities in child and adolescent psychiatry and the standing of the profession.


Policy Division

The role of the policy division is to promote national health policies, public awareness and public advocacy related to the mental health of children and adolescents, and to increase the standing and authority of the Society in Europe and in the European Union.
