Thank you for your interest in presenting at the 3rd annual Integrating Primary and Behavioral Health Through the Lens of Prevention conference (IPBHC). This conference is designed to enhance the national conversation on the role of prevention in the world of health care transformation—including initiatives that integrate behavioral health and primary care including primary care health homes and behavioral health homes created under provisions of the Affordable Care Act and the integration of prevention services with addiction, mental health and primary care services. We value proposals that emphasize communities in transition; culturally relevant and responsive prevention in and with primary care; sustainability through community partnerships such as healthcare neighborhoods, infrastructure enhancement, and policy development. The primary focus for the 2018 conference will be to continue the discussion on how all types of prevention services—substance use prevention, mental health promotion, and wellness through primary care can come together in a comprehensive way to support health communities.

The conference date has been established for November 12-16, 2018. A follow-up communication will be sent within the next 30 days affirming the conference location.
