The Zarrow Mental Health Symposium is an annual educational forum hosted by the Mental Health Association in Tulsa designed to provide state-of-the-art research and best practice information about current issues related to mental health. 2013 marks the 19th year for the conference which will focus on the implications of brain and biological research on clinical practice.
Discussion will focus on emerging knowledge, best practice and innovative approaches to preventing and treating mental disorders, addictions, and co-occurring disorders across the lifespan, and inclusive of special populations. The conference historically draws 600 attendees from across Oklahoma and surrounding states, including licensed mental health professionals, health professionals, educators, and students, along with individuals who live with mental illness and their family members.
In addition to our long-standing partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, this year we are pleased to welcome the Laureate Institute for Brain Research as our conference partners and co-hosts.
Licensed mental health professionals, alcohol and drug counselors, physicians, peer support specialists, prevention specialists, case managers, advocates, researchers, educators and other professionals engaged in social services, health care, faith communities, criminal justice, and public policy. The conference will also be beneficial to individuals and families who have experienced mental illness, substance use related issues, and co-occurring disorders.
