Virtual Policy Forum 2020

The State of Behavioral Health and Post Pandemic Opportunities

   
   

We've transitioned the in-person Spring Policy Forum to a Virtual Policy Forum where our members, industry leaders, and behavioral health experts can still come together to learn about the latest federal and state behavioral health developments, especially now as we all adjust to the pandemic environment and prepare for what is around the corner. As we moved to a virtual forum without meeting venue and meal costs, we've waived all registration fees, so please join us for what is sure to be an extremely informative forum! Registration link is included in the member alerts.

Thank you to Streamline, our Presenting Sponsor!
