2013 Annual Conference: Why Wellness Works
Our 2013 Annual Conference, Why Wellness Works: Breakthroughs and Pathways to Whole Health, took place June 5 - 8, 2013. The conference examined where we stand and where we are headed in implementing wellness strategies within our communities. The conference showcased the mental and physical benefits of living healthy lifestyles for both people living with and without mental health and co-occurring disorders.
Attendees learned about cutting edge approaches, policy initiatives, programs and tools from across the United States related to whole health and wellness to use in the places that we all live, learn, and work.
Thank you so much for your support of our 2013 Annual Conference. Presentations will be posted by June 21st on the conference website.
