The National Alliance on Mental Illness 2014 Conference

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

program-coverThe 2014 National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Convention in Washington, D.C. in September was, by any measure, a huge success. Mingling with consumers, family members, mental health advocates, and a wide range of mental health providers, I couldn’t help but be swept up in the atmosphere of expectation that often permeates these annual gatherings.

A stellar lineup of guest speakers spoke passionately about their particular battles with mental illness. Both a female celebrity and a former U.S. Congressman from a famous American family shared their struggles with bipolar disorder.

A Virginia state senator told of his beloved son’s final, desperate act — the heartbreaking result of a failed delivery system that denied his son an inpatient bed in a time of obvious need.

Announcing the 1st Annual Psych Central Conference

I’m pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 1st Annual Psych Central Conference — a meeting designed to bring together people with a passion for mental health, psychology, self-help and relationship topics. This is a conference for ordinary folks who are interested in these kinds of topics, and who love reading them on Psych Central.

Years in the making, we’re taking the conference plunge because I felt it was time to feature all the great writers, bloggers, therapists and contributors to Psych Central — and elsewhere online and in real life.

It’s an opportunity to learn how to become more mindful in your life, become a better parent, or help improve your relationship. It’s also a chance to hear some great writers speak, to meet some of your Psych Central favorites, and hang out in a historic New England mill town to boot.

Interested? Read on for more details or go register now!
