Kennedy-Satcher Mental Health Equity Educational Conference

Please join us at the 2017 inaugural Kennedy-Satcher Mental Health Equity Educational Conference.  The educational conference will address policy, research, and mental health advocacy through panel discussions, poster presentations, and professional networking.  It will also provide participants with the opportunity to learn about the work of the Kennedy-Satcher Center for Mental Health Equity, including our two signature leadership programs: the Smart and Secure Children Parent Leadership Program (SSC) and the Integrated Care Leadership Program (ICLP).

This educational conference is designed for academics, researchers, clinicians, biomedical students, policy-makers, and mental health providers, advocates, and consumers.

The first panel on Crisis Policy Reporting will include a presentation of a 50-state policy analysis, with an expert panel convened to discuss of the results. The second panel on Measurement-Based Care will feature Integrated Care Leadership Program (ICLP) sites as they present preliminary findings from their learning, quality improvement initiatives, and innovation awards.  Following the morning panels we will have a networking luncheon, followed by concurrent poster presentations, an MSM campus tour, and an SHLI open house.  The remaining ICLP sites will present on the afternoon panel on Transformative Leadership for Integrated Practice, followed by breakout sessions and post-conference session for ICLP sites.  Registration is required to attend the Educational Conference.


By the end of this educational conference, participants will be able to:

  1. Apply current findings related to state comparisons of psychiatric crisis legislation to local policy, research, and advocacy efforts.
  2. Identify the benefits of measurement-based care in improving clinical outcomes for persons with mental health and substance use disorders
  3. Evaluate the use of new technologies in facilitating measurement-based care and building readings for integrated practice.
  4. Network with practitioners, policymakers, advocates, and other stakeholders interested in advancing integrated practice as a means to advance mental health equity.
  5. Explain how ongoing research and quality improvement initiatives apply to the goal of achieving mental health equity.
