We invite you to join us to celebrate our 20th years for the Annual Zarrow Mental Health Symposium: “All Things Prevention” on September 18 – 19, 2014 at the Cox Business Center, (formerly know as the Tulsa Convention Center).

Discussion will highlight emerging knowledge, best practice and innovative approaches to preventing and treating mental disorders, addictions, and co-occurring disorders across the lifespan, with respect to cultural diversity, and inclusive of special populations. Participants may also benefit from discussion dedicated to how to capture information necessary to evaluate and measure prevention.
