Alternatives Conference - Memphis, Tennesee

The Alternatives Conference has offered the newest and best information about peer recovery approaches for almost 30 years. This year, the focus is on the power of believing in ourselves, our cultures, and each other. Belief in the promise of peer support and recovery, along with the evidence to support it, has transformed the mental health system and helped grow a national and international community of peers and supporters.  http://www.altcon2015.net/ 

12th Annual Statewide Intergrated Care Conference - Universal City, California.

October 28th-29th - This year’s conference theme is “Integrating Substance Use, Mental Health, and Primary Care Services: Integration from the Ground Up.”  The neighborhoods we live in influence our behaviors and affect our health in profound ways. Social and economic factors in our communities are linked to mortality, chronic conditions, health behaviors, mental health status, and substance use. Through the conference, they hope to bring together physical health, mental health, and substance use disorder treatment providers to strengthen partnerships and inform innovative services across our diverse communities.  

Central Valley Latino Conference - Visalia, California

Two General Sessions and 20 Workshops offer topics on Evidence Base Practices, Innovative Solutions, Alternative Treatments and Indigenous Practices. http://www.thelatinocommission.org/#!latino-conference/c1w6e 

 

 

L.A. County supervisors move to consolidate three health agencies

 

 "Los Angeles County supervisors voted Tuesday to consolidate three sprawling health agencies under a single director.

The action caused some advocates to fear that the change would favor county hospitals at the expense of agencies providing mental health and public health services.

 

Proponents of the new structure include many county psychiatrists and physicians and Health Services Director Mitchell H. Katz, who will probably be tapped to lead the organization. Supporters say a unified agency will save money on administrative costs and better coordinate services to people who may have a combination of physical, mental health and substance abuse issues."
