On May 21, 2010, UCLA and LAC-DMH jointly sponsored the Partnership for Mental Health Conference at UCLA. In the morning session, a small group of distinguished speakers presented recent and cutting-edge research studies on mental health programs and outcomes. In the afternoon, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Stanislaus Counties presented their MHSA programs and results. California State Director of Mental Health Steven Mayberg, Client Coalition leader Catherine Bond participated in a dialogue about the meaning of recovery; and five County Mental Health Directors presented their thoughts on the next steps forward. The evening program featured presentations by former Los Angeles DMH Directors JR Elpers and Areta Crowell, and health management consultant Alicia Smith. Several of the slide presentations from the conference are available via the links below.
