Conference description

Psychiatric disorders are very common in primary care settings. Limited access to mental health specialty care has led to an increase in psychiatric diagnosis and treatment in the primary care clinic. The goal of this conference is to better equip the primary care provider in delivering effective mental health care to their patients.

Conference location

This event is no longer being held at the Crowne Plaza Lake Oswego. Due to inclement weather this will be a virtual event.
