Mental Health News Radio is proud to announce that they will once again cover the NATCON18 Conference for The National Council for Behavioral Health. This year the prestigious event is to take place at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. Over 5,000 like-minded leaders in the behavioral health field will attend this event to learn how to stay on the cusp of the changes and advances that are being made in mental health advocacy and education. MHNR will interview speakers and vendors at the event to ensure their listeners are also keeping up with the trends in the field. MHNR believes education is key to reducing mental health stigma so covering this event feels like part of their mission. This year’s conference will focus on new research in behavioral health, addiction treatment, and whole-person care. Strategically, Hill Day will coincide with the conference. This will give attendees and participants the opportunity to participate in advocacy for behavioral health on Capitol Hill.

Hill Day is the largest behavioral health advocacy event of the year. This year 18 national mental health organizations will participate in workshops on federal policy concerning behavioral health. After the sessions, the organizations and supporters will go to Capitol Hill to advocate for better mental health care and policies. There will be over 600 advocates that will participate and rally for better mental health care for all. They will have the opportunity to speak directly to officials who make decisions about how our mental health policies are legislated.

There is a rich speaker list at NatCon18 to include Linda Rosenberg, president and CEO of The National Council for Behavioral Health, Brene Brown, famous author and motivational speaker, Michi Marshall, co-founder of Project 375, J. Stewart Ablon, director of Think:Kids, and many more. This five-day event that will take place April 21 - 25 will present a plethora of knowledge for attendees to digest and share with colleagues and family. There will also be an opportunity to attend several Mental Health First Aid courses. Mental Health First Aid, operated by The National Council, is designed to educate the layman about early signs of mental illness and intervention. The program offers concrete tools to participants, so they can learn how to react when faced with a personal mental health crisis or if a loved one is in crisis. They will also learn about their own local mental health resources and online tools for mental health and addiction support.

MHNR will interview speakers and vendors at the event to ensure their listeners are also keeping up with the trends in the field. MHNR believes education is key to reducing mental health stigma so covering this event feels like part of their mission.
