Psychiatry for Non-Psychiatrists Conference

In response to the alarming rise in mental illnesses such as depression, anxiety, insomnia, addiction, and suicide –  and the dearth of mental health providers – we have created a conference to train Primary Care Physicians 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, March 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.
