2019 SOCAT Conference

SCROLL DOWN FOR EVENT DETAILS, ACCESS TO HANDOUTS, REGISTRATION INFORMATION, AND MUCH MORE

The Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (TDMHSAS), in partnership with the Tennessee Commission on Children & Youth (TCCY) and the Tennessee Association of Mental Health Organizations (TAMHO) are excited to announce the

2019 System of Care Across Tennessee (SOCAT) Conference.

The Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (TDMHSAS), in partnership with the Tennessee Commission on Children & Youth (TCCY) and the Tennessee Association of Mental Health Organizations (TAMHO), is excited to present the Seventh Annual System of Care (SOC) Conference: Inviting Everyone to the Table.

This year’s SOC conference focuses on everyone being present and collaborating together to help children, youth, young adults, and their families. Fellow attendees will be from many professions and different child-serving systems, in addition to caregivers, youth, and young adults. Our hope is that you walk away with knowledge on how to provide supports that are family-driven, youth-guided, community-based, and culturally and linguistically responsive. We challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and attend sessions that intrigue you. We hope that by the close of the conference, everyone can see how we all fit together to support each other and work together as we sit at the same [picnic] table. Let’s invite everyone to the table moving forward!

We hope to see you in Franklin in September.
