Behavioral Health Symposium banner

This event took place September 10, 2015. The purpose of the symposium was to examine public health and behavioral health integration models. Our goal is to create a public platform to discuss factors that will promote and sustain efforts for behavioral and public health integration, with a specific focus on how integration can enhance the capacity of both sectors to improve population health. The target audience is state and local public and behavioral health leaders, providers, academicians, community based organizations, and the general public.
