Mental Health America 2015 Annual Conference

Intervention and Innovation Before Stage 4

June 3 - 5


On June 3-5, 2015 Mental Health America will hold its 2015 Annual Conference with the theme Intervention and Innovation Before Stage 4. Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter is serving as Chair of the 2015 Annual Conference Honorary Committee. The event will include several high level plenary sessions, keynote speeches, breakout sessions, and our 2nd Annual Innovation Nation that highlights pioneering programs on the local level. Each year, Mental Health America’s Conference brings together advocates, educators, researchers, business and community leaders, members of Congress and the administration, and health professionals from across the country. Past speakers include Tipper Gore, Sanjay Gupta, Glenn Close, George Stephanopoulos, and entertainer Demi Lovato. We expect 500 people to attend.

In 2015, Mental Health America’s Annual Conference will:

  • Highlight the impact the organization and others have had in improving mental health in America, and the challenges and opportunities in the years ahead;
  • Examine innovations and programs that will play a vital role in shaping the future of mental health care;
  • Discuss the critical need to address those initial signs of a mental illness—before Stage 4—so that we can intervene early and make a difference;
  • Hear from leading public figures and citizens about their own personal struggle and triumph in the face of mental health problems; and
  • Feature the premiere of the ITN Productions/ABC documentary, #B4Stage4.
