California Mental Health Advocates for Children and Youth presents “New Partnerships, New Strategies: Embracing the Wellness of Children, Families and Communities” May 7-9, 2014, at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula.

CMHACY is inviting presentations from service partners in Education, Child Welfare, Alcohol and Other Drug Services and Juvenile Justice, as well as non-traditional partners such as the clergy, community-based organizations and Regional Centers.

David Sheff, a journalist and New York Times best-selling author, will be the keynote speaker at the conference. Sheff’s Beautiful Boy, published in 2008, was based on his article, “My Addicted Son,” which appeared in the New York Times Magazine. The article won a special award from the American Psychological Association for “outstanding contribution to the understanding of addiction.” Beautiful Boy was named the year’s Best Nonfiction Book by Entertainment Weekly, and won the Barnes and Noble Discover Award in nonfiction.

The conference focus includes, but isn’t limited to, effective approaches with positive outcomes regarding the Affordable Care Act (Healthcare Reform); Education, Local Control Funding; Alcohol and Other Drug Services; Core Practice Model; Managed Care; Holistic Wellness; Non-Seriously Mentally Ill; Initiatives; Prevention; Outreach, Engagement and Integration; Safety; Identifying and Strategizing Around Social Determinants; Technology and Outreach; Three year Integration Plan of the MHSA; and Measuring  Performance.
