Details & Registration

The Positive Change Virtual Conference is an annual event designed to offer practical tools, as well as inspiration and encouragement, to those working in helping professions where addiction & mental health disorders are present.

This year’s theme is Bridging the Gaps: Building Integrated Systems of Care. Our communities continue to both recover from the pandemic and to face increases in resulting addiction and mental health issues. Professionals are rising to the occasion but do experience barriers to helping their students and clients. Conference sessions will help bridge the gaps between the need for services & capacity, and between the mental health & addiction fields.

Who should attend?

This community conference welcomes professionals and students from the fields of education; criminal justice; behavioral health; substance use prevention, treatment, or recovery; or healthcare. Other members of the public are also welcome to attend.

Our three Tracks include:

  • Mental Health
  • Prevention
  • Addiction Treatment & Recovery

Snack Box

Each registrant will have a Snack Box of tasty treats mailed to them. Register by March 12th to get your box before the event.
