Psychiatry for Non-Psychiatrists: The University of Arizona 2nd Annual Update in Behavioral Medicine for Primary Care
In response to the alarming rise in mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, trauma – and the dearth of mental health providers – the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson presents a fully virtual conference on Saturday, March 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Psychiatry for Non-Psychiatrists features a host of renowned experts sharing practical and actionable knowledge to help PCPs effectively manage a variety of mental health conditions in primary care settings. Topics include depression, bipolar disorder, chronic pain in older adults, trauma-informed care, hoarding disorder, anxiety and more.
Access to mental health care is a right, not a privilege. Our presenters - hailing from the University of Arizona, Stanford, University of Pittsburgh, University of Kentucky and UCLA - 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.
Cost: $100 for physicians, $75 for nurses/physician assistants, $50 community members (not CME eligible) and $10 for residents/trainees/students (not CME eligible).
