Program Description:

As is our tradition, we promise a varied program that highlights exceptional programs, creative solutions, and inspirational calls to action. Working from feedback provided at last year’s conference, we have paid special attention to providing content for CPRP Supervisors, Case Managers, and Consumers. We believe we offer a program that will be beneficial to all of these audience members, as well as staff members from other agencies involved in the care and treatment of people with serious mental illnesses, family members, and staff of government or regulatory programs.
