Registration Open for the Psychiatry for Non-Psychiatrists Conference on March 12
In response to the alarming rise in mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, addiction and suicide – and the dearth of mental health providers – the Department of Psychiatry is hosting a conference to train primary care physicians (PCPs) to more confidently care for their patients with these conditions.
This fully virtual conference, “Psychiatry for Non-Psychiatrists: The University of Arizona Update in Behavioral Medicine for Primary Care” on Saturday, Mar. 12 will provide practical and actionable knowledge to help PCPs effectively manage these conditions in primary care settings.
Access to mental health care is a right, not a privilege. We aim to empower PCPs with new clinical skills to enhance access to care, improve comorbid medical conditions and reduce the stigma of seeking treatment for mental illness.
5.5 CME credits available.
Cost: $100 for physicians, $75 for nurses/physician assistants, $50 community members (not CME eligible) and $10 for residents/trainees/students (not CME eligible).
