Oh behalf of the IAYMH Executive I write to extend our sincere thanks to you and your team for all of your efforts in making the Second International Youth Mental Health Conference a great success. The professionalism of your team and the attention to detail, timelines and the careful eye on the ever present budget issues was invaluable and ultimately lead to the success of this intentional event. In particular your support of our desire to make this an inclusive event through the direct involvement of young people and the strong focus on social media was fantastic. The detailed work undertaken to ensure the program and associated materials was spot on was also exemplary. We have had incredibly positive feedback from delegates, the IAYMH and our Partners who were involved in the planning of the event. In particular people have commented on the vibe at the event and the ‘nothings too much trouble’ attitude from the Advantage Group staff. As a result of the expert and excellent assistance provided by Advantage Group we have set a new benchmark for future Conferences. Kerryn Pennell, Chairperson, Organising Committee, Treasurer, IAYM
