Behavioral health is among the most challenging patient service offerings at health systems and hospitals. The need for services is as intense today as it has ever been!”

The National Institute of Mental Health estimated that in 2021, one in five adults in the United States lived with mental illness. Furthermore, the behavioral health market is expected to grow to $105 billion by 2029 -  up from about $77 billion in 2021. In order to keep up with this incredibly growing demand for care, healthcare leaders and treatment providers need to come up with innovative strategies to be able to continue providing quality of care, while successfully managing this vulnerable population. 

InfoSource Events' 5th Behavioral Health Business Summit will address some of the most pressing topics of interest in Behavioral Healthcare delivery, while mapping out a plan for you that will drive success in today's ever-changing healthcare market.

With thought-provoking case studies, eye-opening keynotes, topic-specific discussion groups, panels, inspiring speakers, and fantastic networking opportunities, this invitation-only, not-to-miss Behavioral Health Summit is set to provide you with a renewed focus and a fresh perspective on the future trends shaping the Behavioral Health market.
