The Conference For All Members Of The Care Team

A Conference For All Members Of The Care Team

CFHA's annual conference is renown as the premiere annual meeting place for medical providers, behavioral health professionals, foundations, payers and other health care professionals to meet and share the latest innovations in the integration of behavioral/mental health and medicine. Our participants work in primary care, specialty medical settings, hospitals, substance abuse and mental health centers. Our presenters are our renown expert members who bring a practical and passionate, real-world perspective.

Parinda Khatri, Cherokee Health Systems

"It has been over a decade since [my first] meeting, and I have not missed a single CFHA conference since.  People ask me why I am part of CFHA and I tell them this: I am a better clinician because of CFHA.  I am a better teacher because of CFHA. I am a better administrator because of CFHA. I have lifelong friends because of CFHA."

Rick Ybarra, Hogg Foundation for Mental Health

"Whether you are a graduate student, early career professional, seasoned professional, or “I really want to learn a more about this integration thing…,” the annual conference will not only meet but exceed your expectations and increase your professional skills and competencies in integration."

David Haralson, Eastern Carolina University

"I attended CFHA for the first time last year, and I loved it! I was able to learn from the leading experts in the fields of integrated care and family-centered care and to discuss internship opportunities with many of them. It was awesome to see so many different healthcare professionals coming together to learn from each other. I can't wait to do it again this year!"

Monica Harrison, Center of Excellence for Integrated Care

“As a first-time attendee, I was amazed at the number of clinicians and researchers across multiple disciplines in attendance.  It was a rewarding experience that gave me an opportunity to make some individual connections and exchange integrated care adventures."
