We Are Better Together: 20th Interagency Conference

Monday to Thursday

Sponsored by the Bureau of Children’s Behavioral Health Services and System of Care Partners and Child Welfare Resource Center, this conference is a state-wide event to focus on ways to address the behavioral health needs of children, youth, young adults and their families.

This conference brings together professionals from the child-serving systems of:

  • behavioral health
  • education
  • juvenile justice
  • children and youth
  • drug and alcohol
  • early intervention and developmental disabilities
  • youth and families who receive behavioral health services

The aim is to share information and build connections to provide better integrated and responsive care.

The conference is now soliciting proposals for both presentations and for a poster session.

Poster Session

The poster session is scheduled for Wednesday May 2 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm.

The poster session is an opportunity to share academic research regarding innovative, promising, collaborative, and creative program practices focused on supporting the health and wellness of youth from birth to young adulthood and their families. All community partners are invited to submit proposals for review.

Some examples include:

  • college and university-based scholars and student researchers
  • youth and family initiatives
  • awareness and advocacy groups
  • community collaborations
  • evidence-based treatment programs
  • other service provider agencies
  • family, youth, and professional associations across the Commonwealth
