Mental Health Association Oklahoma will host the 21st annual Zarrow Mental Health Symposium September 17 – 18, 2015 at the Cox Business Center in Tulsa (100 Civic Center, Tulsa, OK 74103). This year’s theme is “Integrating Healthcare: Treating Mind, Body, and Spirit.” The symposium will focus on integrative and collaborative health care designed to reconcile the fragmented, sometimes incompatible mental and physical health care that people with mental illness frequently experience. The agenda, including a full list of breakout sessions, is available here.
Confirmed plenary speakers include Dr. Susan T. Azrin, Program Chief of the Primary Care Research Program at the National Institute of Mental Health; Dr. Andrew Bertagnolli, Senior Manager for Behavioral Health at Kaiser Permante Care Management Institute; and Susan Dentzer, Senior Policy Advisor to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and one of the nation’s most respected health care journalists. More than 700 mental health professionals, advocates, those impacted by mental illness, and their loved ones from across the US are expected to attend. You can register here.
