Innovative new mental health app LARKR is excited to announce that its co-founder Christianne Kernes, also a licensed therapist, will present at the upcoming Mental Health America (MHA) 2018 Annual Conference. The conference will be held on June 14-16, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.
Themed “Fit for the Future,” this year’s conference programs will feature 21st Century technologies, like LARKR, that are transforming the way mental health professionals provide treatment and conduct research.
Kernes’ presentation, which will take place on Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 9 a.m., is titled “Finding the Best Fit: Exploring Innovative New Channels for Mental Health Care.” The seminar will focus on re-evaluating how and where mental health solutions are provided and ways to enact change to help create a healthier society. Attendees will explore how the mental health care industry can innovate in potentially unexpected ways to overcome current roadblocks to care and provide accessible, effective mental health care for all who need it.
