 Submit your proposal today! Submissions are due December 7, 2015

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

The conference brings together a diverse group of presenters to share information about therapeutic interventions, recovery supports, promising programs and policies that advance best practices. Our goal is to provide a learning experience that expands professional knowledge, promotes community partnerships, and helps make recovery a reality. Last year over 690 people attended – this is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and experience!

As a presenter at the 2016 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, non-profit staff, advocates and staff of system partners and state agencies including DSHS’ Division of Behavioral Health & Recovery and the Department of Corrections.
