Washington Behavioral Health Conference 2016

June 22, 2016 - June 24, 2016


We invite you to join us at the 27th annual Washington Behavioral Healthcare Conference!

As our state continues to move toward the vision of full integration, and reform of the delivery system continues, we see great potential for improvements in the lives of people living with mental illness and/or substance use disorders. However, many important questions remain. How can we ensure that system redesign efforts result in greater capacity to support individuals with behavioral health needs to live healthy lives and recover in the community?

One way is to join us in Yakima for 3 days of learning, networking, and collaboration. Highlights will include 35 workshops in tracks like Recovery & Resiliency, Integration, Co-Occurring Disorder Treatment, Corrections & Mental Health, and more; pre-conference sessions on Assessing & Managing Suicide Risk and Law & Ethics; and keynoters Daniel James Brown  (New York Times best-selling author of The Boys in the Boat); Kevin Hines, (a national mental health advocate and author of Cracked Not Broken), and Joel Dvoskin, PhD (a national leader on mental health and criminal justice policy). Click HERE to see the full lineup, and to register!

Last year over 690 people attended, so don’t miss this great opportunity to learn, network, and be inspired! If your organization is interested in exhibiting at the WBHC, please click here: 2016 WBHC Exhibitor Info & Application.
