SAMHSA Women's Conference
This CONFERence is for anyone interested in learning more and participating in a
dialogue about mental health and substance abuse prevention, treatment and
recovery for women and girls.
Program directors, clinicians, administrators, researchers, policy-makers,
individuals in recovery, students and other stakeholders serving women and girls
will find attendance at this conference to be relevant and worthwhile. The
intent of the co-sponsors is to create a CONFERence filled with informed
dialogue and stimulating resources that inform, inspire and encourage the best
possible prevention, mental health and addictions services for women and girls.
As suggested by the CONFERence theme, “It’s All About HERR – Health,
Empowerment, Resilience and Recovery” the 2012 conference will be:
Implementation Focused: Effective practices and policies to improve
outcomes for women and girls and the capacity to use them.
Building Alignment and Unity: Creating a better shared understanding
across prevention, mental health and addictions treatment and recovery
Creating a Learning Community Focused on Women and Girls:
Exchanging research and practice on what works. The conference
embodies gender-responsive, recovery-oriented, culturally-competent,
trauma-informed principles and practices and celebrates diversity.
