What People Are Saying About IPS

 

This conference is essential to [clinicians] working to address social justice, stigma, advocacy, community mental health, and underserved populations. It is the perfect size to allow for networking and partnership."

As a mental health advocate, I really enjoyed [IPS] and learned a lot. There was a good balance of updates to the field of psychiatry but also a lot of information regarding the field of mental health. As a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), it was very enriching. I appreciate the reduced cost for the mental health providers because we need to access this information as well."

The collaborative energy was palpable and the topics covered where very helpful. I had difficulty choosing what to attend because I wanted to go to so many presentations."
