The First Annual Child Mental & Behavioral Health revolves around the complexity associated with children’s mental and behavioral health, and assesses the latest research and updates in child mental health disorders. Associated treatment options and services are an important part of the conference and will ensure better practices and delivery of services to children with mental health disorders in the region.

The conference will update healthcare providers on common neurobehavioral and mental health disorders, current treatment options and services presently available for children with special needs, as well as methods for interagency involvement and collaboration, uniting health, education and social services.
