Our attendees are doers, not dreamers. We want to focus on what matters the most – powerful, relevant education that clinicians can apply in practice on their first day back to the office.

The U.S. Psychiatric & Mental Health Congress (Psych Congress) is pleased to announce it is heading west in 2015, landing in sunny San Diego, California, for the 28th installment of the nation’s largest independent, cross-discipline educational conference dedicated to psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and wellness.

Psych Congress, held from September 10-13, 2015, at the San Diego Convention Center, is the only national mental health education meeting scheduled on the west coast in 2015 and will convene nearly 2,000 psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, physician assistants, psychologists, primary care physicians, and other healthcare professionals who seek to increase their knowledge, confidence, and abilities to improve patient outcomes pertaining to mental illness.

The conference and exhibition will feature a wide variety of educational sessions, enabling attendees to earn nearly 30 CME/CE credits while on site. Psych Congress will also feature:

  •     A new six-credit preconference entitled: Advanced Psychopharmacology: Real Patients, Real Problems, Real Solutions
  •     A new Maximum Credit Package, bundling live conference learning with Psych Congress On-Demand, allowing attendees to earn up to 70 CME/CE credits
  •     Featured plenary sessions held at the end of each day and presented by some of the most recognized thought leaders in mental health
  •     “The Medicine of Music,” a unique, experiential Kickoff Keynote Address given by mental health advocate and first violin of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Vijay Gupta, MM

“Our attendees are doers, not dreamers. While developing this year’s scientific agenda, along with new offerings such as our advanced psychopharmacology preconference, we want to focus on what matters the most – powerful, relevant education that clinicians can apply in practice on their first day back to the office,” said conference co-chair Rakesh Jain, MD, MPH.

In addition to a strong, focused educational mission, Psych Congress is also expanding its one-day regional meeting series to ten cities in 2015. These condensed, weekend programs serve as a valuable supplement to the national conference and provide clinicians top-flight mental health education conveniently located near their place of practice.

The Psych Congress 1-Day Regional Meeting series will visit the following cities in 2015:

  •     Miami, FL – March 7, 2015
  •     Philadelphia, PA – March 14, 2015
  •     Seattle, WA – April 26, 2015
  •     Austin, TX – May 2, 2015
  •     Phoenix, AZ – June 6, 2015
  •     New York, NY – June 13, 2015
  •     Atlanta, GA – September 26, 2015
  •     San Francisco, CA – October 3, 2015
  •     San Antonio, TX – November 7, 2015
  •     Chicago, IL – November 14, 2015

The one-day programs will feature sessions different from those offered in San Diego and provide attendees the opportunity to earn up to 6.25 CME/CE credits. Additionally, those clinicians who attend a one-day meeting will also receive $100 off registration for the national conference.
