On March 7th, 2016 staff members from Vail Place traveled to Las Vegas, NV for the National Council for Behavioral Health Conference also known as NatCon16. The annual three-day conference brings together health, mental health, and addiction care professionals from across the country to discuss industry innovations and best practices. Vail Place staff returned from the conference bursting with new ideas and ways to improve current programs and initiatives. This year NatCon16 focused specifically on social determinants of health as well as addiction. Linda Rosenberg, National Council President and CEO, kicked off the event with a discussion regarding the convergence of policy and technology, and praised the organization’s growth and ability to make a difference to large numbers of people.
