The National Dialogues on Behavioral Health is the oldest ongoing annual conference on mental health and substance abuse in the United States. Formerly known as the Southern Conference on Mental Health, the first conference was held in 1959. This year the conference is 57 years old.
The conference has been described as “a gem in the behavioral health field.” The purpose of the conference is to bring experts, administrators, providers, consumers, family members and advocates together to discuss the cutting edge in the topic of interest with a focus on implementation and “how to do it.” A distinctive feature is the opportunity for extended dialogue and interaction among the participants.
The 2016 Conference planning is well underway. Please excuse our website while we finalize the details and update the registration links!
