Positive Change Virtual Conference

Millersville University

April 2024 Event

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 was 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.
