Seizing the Opportunity to Create Healthy Communities
June 19-20, 2014 (preconference day June 18)
The time is here to start thinking about the 2014 Washington Behavioral Healthcare Conference!
The theme for the 2014 WBHC is Seizing the Opportunity to Create Healthy Communities, and we are looking forward to a great conference.
We strive to bring together a diverse group of presenters to share information about cognitive, behavioral and other therapeutic strategies, promising programs and and policies that advance best practices. Our goal is to provide a valuable conference that expands professional knowledge, promotes community partnerships, and helps make recovery a reality. Last year over 580 people attended - this is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and experience!
As a presenter at the WBHC, you will gain visibility and have the opportunity to interact with a broad audience. Conference attendees include clinical staff, program managers, consumers, family members, peers, nonprofit staff, and staff of system partners and state agencies including DSHS' Division of Behavioral Health & Recovery and the Department of Corrections.
Topics of particular interest for the 2014 WBHC include:
- Care transitions (including hospitals, correctional & other facilities)
- Corrections & Mental Health
- Homelessness, Housing & Employment
- Older Adult, Child & Family, Youth in Transition Services
