SAMHSA, in partnership with Mental Health Systems, Inc., is pleased to host the 5th National Conference on Behavioral Health for Women and Girls: Health, Empowerment, Resilience, and Recovery.
This 2½-day conference will bring together a diverse audience with an interest in prevention, mental health, and addiction services for women and girls. Join with leaders, colleagues, and stakeholders as we create a 2½-day conference community to discuss the current research, innovations, and trends serving women, girls, and their families.
There will be a variety of energizing ways to learn, converse, and contribute. You will have opportunities to interact with presenters and with other participants in a variety of venues. Access to nationally recognized speakers and authors, tea with experts, an array of presentation types, and a bookstore make this conference unique and essential for today's providers of women's services. Through different types of sessions, you will be able to tailor your conference experience to match your preferences.
It's All About HERR
As suggested by the conference theme, "It's All About HERR—Health, Empowerment, Resilience, and Recovery," the 2012 conference will be implementation focused; build alignment and unity by creating a better shared understanding across prevention, mental health, and substance abuse treatment and recovery fields; and create a learning community focused on women and girls. The conference embodies gender-responsive, recovery-oriented, culturally competent, trauma-informed principles and practices and celebrates diversity.
