Now more than ever we need research, innovation, and action to promote behavioral health among individuals, families, and communities. Coming Together for Action brought together community members, practitioners, researchers, and policy makers who are passionate about behavioral health, social justice, and well-being promotion. Around 200 individuals came to Aurora, CO to develop leadership capacity, learn about promising practices and policies, stimulate new and innovative ideas, and spark collaborative efforts. We had four thought-provoking plenary addresses, sessions aimed at policy and advocacy, 60+ stimulating presentations, and an opportunities for discussion and networking. A common phrase among conference attendees was, "I've found my people!". Click here to see the full conference program
