NRI/NASMHPD 2017 Meeting

NRI, in collaboration with the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD), hosted a meeting of State Mental Health Agency Commissioners and Senior Agency Staff on Monday July 31, 2017. The invitation-only meeting offered an unprecedented opportunity for Senior Behavioral Health Leadership in the States to come together and discuss areas of mutual interest, share challenges across the systems of care, and identify solutions that have worked in peer States. This is the first time that a meeting of its kind has been held; we are excited to offer this platform for States to share ideas within and among State Behavioral Health leadership teams. Approximately 250 State attendees were expected. 

We would like to thank the following organizations supporting the meeting through sponsorships. The agenda for the closed-door meeting can be found here. For questions, please contact Vera Hollen.
