Who We Are
AACAP-PAC is the voice of child and adolescent psychiatry on Capitol Hill. As the only PAC representing child and adolescent psychiatrists, our mission is clear: To educate, support, and elect candidates for Congress who advocate for child and adolescent psychiatry and child mental health. AACAP-PAC’s vision for the future is that child and adolescent psychiatry will have strong relationships with legislators, so that Congress acts to improve child mental health. To make our vision a reality, we need you to join AACAP-PAC today.
