2020 WASHINGTON BEHAVIORAL HEALTHCARE CONFERENCE
June 17-19, 2020
Strengthening Community-Based Treatment & Recovery
Join us in presenting innovative workshops at the 31st annual Washington Behavioral Healthcare Conference!
The conference brings together a diverse group of presenters to share information about therapeutic interventions, recovery supports, promising programs, and policies that advance best practices. Our goal is to provide a learning experience that expands professional knowledge, promotes community partnerships, and helps make recovery a reality. Last year over 680 people attended – this is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and experience!
As a presenter at the 2020 WBHC, you’ll gain visibility and have the opportunity to interact with a broad audience. Conference attendees include clinical staff, program managers, consumers/clients, family members, peers, non-profit staff, advocates, and staff of system partners and state agencies including the Health Care Authority, DSHS, and the Department of Corrections.
