Improving Lives

The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority Conference

September 27th and 28th, 2022
9:30 AM – 5:00 PM
Dena’ina Convention Center, Anchorage, Alaska

The Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority’s Improving Lives Conference will focus on issues impacting Trust beneficiaries: Alaskans who experience mental illness, substance use disorders, intellectual and developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, and Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

It is the duty of the Trust to provide leadership in the advocacy, planning, implementing, and funding of services and programs that improve the lives and circumstances of Trust beneficiaries. The Improving Lives Conference will meaningfully address behavioral health systems across Trust beneficiary groups, data-driven innovative and promising practices, and strengthening Alaska’s continuum of care. Please join us in Anchorage on September 27 and 28, 2022 to learn, gather, network, make connections and share ideas.

Join us for the 2022 conference as we explore:

Behavioral health support across beneficiary groups and the lifespan, including co-occurring disorders

Innovative and Promising Practices for Serving Trust beneficiaries

Strengthening our Continuum of Care for Trust beneficiaries

Incorporating lived experience and beneficiary perspectives into programs and planning

The work of the Trust aligns with Strengthening the System: Alaska’s Comprehensive Integrated Mental Health Program Plan (Comp Plan), that was developed in a partnership between the Trust and the Department of Health and Social Services in coordination with community stakeholders. The Comp Plan identifies priorities for the next five years to inform planning and funding decisions to meet the needs of Trust beneficiaries. The intent is to strengthen the system of care to allow a comprehensive approach that quickly meets their needs.
