Indian Health Service
Integrated Behavioral Health Conference

The 17th Annual Phoenix Area Indian Health Service Integrated Behavioral Health Conference has officially been postponed until further notice due to the widespread health risks posed by the coronavirus (COVID-19). 

All registrations will be automatically transferred to the new date when it is announced. Please know that we did not make this decision lightly.  The health and safety of our registrants, vendors, staff, partners, and speakers is of the utmost importance to us.  As most of you are frontline providers of health care in our communities, the health of your patients is also a top priority.

The Center for Applied Behavioral Health and Phoenix Area Indian Health Service will have additional notices coming soon regarding Continuing Education opportunities related to this year's conference theme "Healing the Healer." We'll have addtional notices soon regarding online learning opportunities concerning self-care, treatment of substance use disorders, motivational interviewing, child protection, and a number of other topics relevant to those working in the behavioral health field with the AI/AN populations we serve

All IHS employees, tribes, urban programs & partners who serve our patients will be invited.
