Conference Information:


By recognizing that trauma is a health concern and it impacts the emotional and physical wellness of individuals, behavioral health providers can begin to provide support to consumers through the implementation of evidence-based and best practice interventions, and collaboration across the system of care.

It is important to develop and implement treatment services that can effectively address post-traumatic stress symptoms while also successfully managing the risk of triggering individuals into episodes of mental illness symptoms or substance abuse relapse. The goal of this conference is to advance the development and implementation of evidence-based treatment services to individuals served by the public behavioral health system.
