Be the Voice

People who live with behavioral health issues can’t always fight for themselves. They frequently feel alone and don’t think they have anyone to turn to. Those who work in behavioral health care make a difference. They are the voices for those who don’t know that help is within reach. 

Positive changes are happening in behavioral health care, and you can be part of those changes. It is time to use your experiences, your knowledge, and your voices to make a difference!

Join us for two days of intense discussions and learn innovative ways others are making progress in a silent field.

December 9 – 10, 14th Annual Behavioral Health Care Symposium
