Join other professionals throughout the Bay Area for this half-day symposium focused on the specific needs of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities co-occurring with behavioral health disorders. The event will focus on the service gaps often encountered by administrators, clinicians, providers, case managers, law enforcement, individuals, and families.  

Expert panelists will offer overviews of County Behavioral Health and Regional Centers systems, the service gaps encountered, strategies to address these challenges, and models of care coordination to assure effective treatment and begin the process of Bridging the Gap!

Please contact David Grady for assistance with accessibility accommodations.

We are asking for a nominal fee of $5 to hold your spot. Proceeds will be returned in the form of door prizes and raffles.
