Event Description:

For more than 30 years, this biennial event has been the premier convening of leaders in systems of care for children, youth, and young adults with behavioral health challenges and their families. This year’s theme, LEADING CHANGE: Integrating Systems and Improving Outcomes in Behavioral Health for Children, Youth, Young Adults, and Their Families, builds upon decades of progress in designing and sustaining high-quality and effective delivery systems for children, youth, and young adults with mental health and substance use disorders and their families.

This year’s Training Institutes will address data-driven policy, system design and implementation, and evidence-informed approaches relevant to Medicaid, mental health, substance use, child welfare, juvenile justice, early intervention, and prevention stakeholders and practitioners. Sessions will focus on the latest best-practice strategies, draw on community, tribal, and territorial examples from around the country, and provide concrete strategies that provide operational guidance for implementation.

In addition, six intensive Pre-Institutes Training Programs will be offered. Each program will span one or two days and will cost an additional registration fee of $295. One of the Pre-Institutes will be "Supervision in Wraparound: Moving Beyond the Values and Principles," led by NWIC faculty.
