April 2017

ZiaPartners attended NATCON 17, the National Council of Behavioral Healthcare annual meeting in Seattle.   ZiaPartners has just this year become an affiliate National Council member, which is a privileged status that allows participation in selected National Council leadership activities, such as the upcoming leadership retreat in Washington DC in June.

ZiaPartners was also invited to participate in the National Council Medical Director’s Institute dinner meeting.

At the NATCON meeting, we did a presentation entitled “Integrating Substance Abuse Services into Mental Health Services: You CAN Try this at Home.”  The presentation was extremely well received and had over 200 attendees.

The National Council of Behavioral Healthcare conference focused on recovery and ending the mental stigma.  It was a four-day conference with events, such as a film festival, TED-style talks, workshops, and several notable speakers, including former surgeon general Vivek Murthy and actress Anna Deavere Smith.  For more information on NATCON 2017, feel free to visit their website.
