Target Audience

The target audience for this conference is community service providers and health professionals who would benefit from behavioral health education.

Purpose

The purpose of this conference is to establish a meaningful dialogue among health professionals by focusing on trending topics, best practices and strategies for addressing barriers in behavioral health.

Educational Need

Medical providers are in need of education on substance use disorders (SUD), mental health disorders (MH) and problem gambling. The 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (administered by SAMHSA) identified that among adults aged 18 and older, 3.8% or 9.5 million individuals had both a SUD and MH disorder in the United States, 19.3 million (7.7%) individuals had a SUD and 51.5 million (20.6%) individuals had a MH disorder.

Additionally, the pandemic, in some areas, has at minimum disrupted if not halted services for periods of time for both MH and SUD in Iowa. Due to the enormous amount of stress and chaos caused by the pandemic it is likely that medical providers will see significant increases in positive symptoms for MH and SUD and this event will help to educate providers on how to recognize, treat and help Iowans recover.

The first date of the event will largely focus on topics related to COVID-19, the second day will focus on workforce development related topics such as retainment and engagement as well as topics on stress and burnout and on the third day, the event will provide testimony of resiliency and hope, which will education and teach providers the facets of resiliency needed in order to recover from SUD and MH disorders.
