For Exhibitors and Sponsors

The California Council of Community Behavioral Health Agencies (CBHA) is pleased to invite you to our inaugural Behavioral Health Conference (BHCalCon)! BHCalCon is CBHA’s new statewide behavioral health conference open to the general public.

Historically, CBHA has held policy forums open only to our members. Our forums have always featured top California behavioral health leaders that engage with the attendees and share policy-rich information that is critical to the success of behavioral health agencies. We are excited to expand the audience, increase collaboration in the community, and widen our network of support which is why BHCalCon will open registration to nonmembers. 

BHCalCon is CBHA’s first statewide behavioral health conference in California that will cover all aspects of behavioral health within our healthcare system and designed for staff members, practitioners, administrators and managers who work in the behavioral health arena. Specifically, individuals who work in the areas of child welfare, probation, education, health care, clinicians in private practice, and insurance. Our goal is to provide a wide range of learning opportunities that cover the continuum of best practices in children’s mental health; adults/older adults mental health; substance use disorders; finance and billing; quality improvement/quality assurance; intercultural effectiveness; and business practices that support sustainability. 

We encourage you to take this opportunity to engage with behavioral health agencies, counties, treatment providers and peers. Join us!
