2018 Conference: What does "fit for the future" mean?
When it comes to mental health, is the United States languishing in the past, or are we fit for the future?
Our Fit for the Future theme will explore what we can do personally as individuals to keep ourselves healthy in the 21st Century – how data and personal narratives are increasingly connecting exercise and nutrition to overall mental health, and how leaders in the nutrition and fitness fields are using this information to promote overall health and well-being and impact the mental health of millions.
We will dive into programs that are already making use of cutting edge 21st Century technologies, treatments, and research – as well as those that will emerge soon to benefit those with mental health needs.
We will offer new tools and techniques that are enabling professionals and peers to launch innovative and collaborative practices that brighten the future of mental health care for all – including those with serious mental health concerns.
And we will talk about what we must still do to enact 21st Century policy solutions to support all these efforts – to demonstrate how designing and implementing effective prevention, early intervention, and recovery-oriented policies that promote innovation can make a real difference Before Stage 4 – just as we do with every other chronic disease.
Join MHA and hundreds of others from all over the country as we hear from fitness experts, nutritionists, health and mental health professionals, individuals and families with lived experience, policy makers, media standouts, corporate leaders, researchers, MHA affiliates and more about these important and timely topics. In addition, we will hold a special pre-conference day on June 13, 2018, exclusively for MHA affiliates and invited guests.
MHA will not settle for the answers of the past in mental health care and treatment. We believe in taking charge of a brighter future—where there is always hope. If you do too, then this is a conference you don’t just have to attend, this is a conference you want to attend.
