Membership in the Wisconsin Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (WISCCAP) is synonymous with AACAP. The benefits of each are tied together.

WISCCAP provides our members a forum for connecting both to each other and information for our members, such as occur at the Board of Directors' meetings held around the state and open to the membership, as well as the ability to join together as advocates for the children of our state both locally and through delegates at the national level.

Members of WISCCAP can join the private Facebook group (Wisconsin Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry), which is an invitation only group.  If interested in joining , please email
