2017 Behavioral Health Symposium

The 2017 Behavioral Health Symposium is intended to benefit all organizations that currently contract with DBHDD’s Division of Behavioral Health.  Both symposium days present a mixture of plenary sessions and presentations (designed as workshops or panels) which are organized into four (4) tracks: clinical, leadership, prevention, and recovery.  The presentations address best practices in treatment, and prevention as well as emerging research related to child, adolescent, and adult mental health and addictive diseases. The pre-symposium focuses on prevention topics only.  National and state subject matter experts are carefully chosen to help achieve the following Symposium purposes: awareness, cultural competency, learning and networking, and skill building.
