The Indian Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (IACAM) was formed in the year 1988 when a group of mental health professionals committed to the aim of addressing the mental health problems of child and adolescents in India, and was formally created in 1990 in Pune. The first executive council was headed by Late Dr. Roshen Master as its President, Dr. L. P. Shah as its Vice-President and Dr. Savita Malhotra as the Secretary-General. Amongst its various objectives, IACAM focused on the advancement of practice and research in child and adolescent mental health and to extend the knowledge base so generated to the public and professionals by the means of various scientific activities. It is this last objective which formed the foundation stone for conception of a dedicated journal in the field of child and adolescent mental health in India and subsequently the Journal of Indian Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (JIACAM) was envisaged.

The first issue of JIACAM was published on 01st January 2005 under the guidance of Prof. Indira Sharma as its Editor comprising various articles contributed by mental health professionals from India and abroad.
 
JIACAM is indexed with, or included in, the following: EMBASE (Excerpta Medica Database), SCOPUS and UGC Care List. Manuscripts must be prepared in accordance with "Uniform requirements for Manuscripts submitted to Biomedical Journals" developed by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (October 2008). All manuscripts are peer-reviewed by 2 anonymous referees. The journal does not charge for submission, processing or publication of an article. JIACAM follows the policy of Open Access to Scientific literature. Articles are freely accessible online in perpetuity under a Creative Commons license.

The Journal of Indian Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (JIACAM) is a peer-reviewed quarterly publication of the Indian Association of Child and Adolescent Mental Health (IACAM), whose mission is to publish original manuscripts in all areas of child and adolescent mental health (from age 0-19 years), focusing on public health, clinical epidemiology, basic science and mental health problems. To achieve these aims we publish original scientific studies, review and educational articles, and papers commenting on the clinical, scientific, social, political, and economic factors affecting child and adolescent mental health from all areas across the world. Manuscripts are accepted for consideration for publication by the JIACAM with the understanding that they represent original material, have not been published previously, are not being considered for publication elsewhere, and have been approved by each author. Manuscripts can be submitted under various headings viz.
