About the Conference

Conference logoNow more than ever we need research, innovation, and action to promote behavioral health among individuals, families, and communities. In the United States, Canada, and the world, people feel marginalized, many do not have a voice, and many slip through the cracks of our communities and systems. Making progress necessitates a comprehensive, people-centered approach to developing and implementing formal and informal services and supports. Such progress cannot be made without the engagement of community members, practitioners, researchers, and policy makers. The conference is being convened to bring together individuals from across disciplines who are passionate about behavioral health, social justice, and well-being promotion to develop leadership capacity, learn about promising practices and policies, stimulate new and innovative ideas, spark collaborative efforts, and come away energized and ready to take action.
