We invite you to join us at the 29th annual Washington Behavioral Healthcare Conference!

Healthcare system reform, state and regional restructuring, and Medicaid transformation continue around us at a breathtaking pace. As community behavioral health providers and people living with the challenges of mental illness and/or substance use disorders, we’re gathering in June to support resilience and ongoing innovation as we work for improved individual and community health. Let’s learn from the experts and from each other, share thoughts, ideas and opinions, and have some fun!

Keynoters for 2018 include Dr. Fred Osher, an expert in homelessness, community psychiatry, and effective approaches to people with behavioral health disorders within criminal justice settings, Roy Fisher, MA, LMFT, a leader in the fields of equity, inclusion, and the impact of race on mental health, and Sheila Hamilton, a five-time Emmy award winning journalist and radio host who talks about resilience in surviving the suicide of her husband. Other highlights include 35 workshops with tracks focusing on corrections & mental health, recovery & resiliency, integration, co-occurring disorders, and more. Click here for the full brochure!

The behavioral health community has many heroes, but we don’t know who they are if you don’t tell us! Click here to nominate someone for a Hero Award!
