Case Conference and Professional Networking Group

Engage Community Project

Our profession can be isolating at times and this case conference is an opportunity to support fellow mental health colleagues. This case conference is open to all licensed mental health professionals as well as registered interns and trainees. The purpose of this case conference is to provide mutual support for mental health practitioners in the local area dealing with difficult cases. It's also an opportunity to get to know your fellow practitioners and become aware of other services in our community. For those who wish to present topics related to mental health such as; billing services, inpatient treatment programs, financial planning, and other related mental health topics are welcome to present a brief introduction prior to the beginning of the case conference. The case conference will then commence immediately after introductions. We are an informal group devoted to providing mutual support to mental health practitioners. The case conference will begin at 9 AM and conclude at 11:00 AM. I know many of you have a busy schedule so feel free to leave at your convenience. Also, if you know of a fellow mental health professional who might wish to attend please feel free to invite them. Call me at[masked] if you have any questions. Howard Levitt M.A. LMFT
