Our state and nation face uncertainty and challenges as healthcare policy and financing landscapes shift under a new federal administration. However, Washington was granted an enormous opportunity to better support health and recovery when CMS approved a five-year Medicaid Transformation Demonstration Waiver. Let’s work together to make the most of this opportunity to improve the lives and health of people living with the challenges of mental illness and/or addictions.

To that end, we’re pleased to bring you an exciting and diverse lineup of inspiring speakers, many of whom have faced obstacles and seized opportunities to make a difference, advancing hope, health and recovery. These national and regional experts, consumer leaders, and local providers will offer you their knowledge, tools, and resources to recognize opportunity and create change in your own communities.

Confirmed keynoters include Kevin Briggs, a suicide prevention and crisis management expert; Victoria Maxwell, an actress & expert on the lived experience of mental illness, recovery and stigma; and Hank Steadman, PhD, a national leader on mental health and criminal justice policy.

Other highlights of the three days in Vancouver are the 35 workshops, with tracks focusing on corrections & mental health, recovery & resiliency, integration, cultural awareness & diversity, and management, leadership & operations.
