Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) November 25, 2015
Brookhaven Retreat ® LLC, a unique residential treatment facility exclusively for women with mental health and/or substance abuse issues, will attend the psychiatry event of the year, the 2016 annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association in Atlanta, GA May 14-18. The theme will be “Claiming Our Future.”
Brookhaven Retreat offers a unique voluntary residential program of mental health and substance abuse services designed to help women overcome depression, trauma, anxiety, personality disorders, and substance dependence among other diagnoses.
Owner Jacqueline Dawes and her team will be at a 20x10 exhibitor booth answering questions about The Lily Program®, a 90-day individualized mental health treatment program offered exclusively at Brookhaven Retreat. Visitors of the booth can enter a drawing to win prizes and receive a messenger bag with information about Brookhaven Retreat plus additional giveaways.
Owner Jacqueline Dawes and her team look forward to the APA meeting to be held this year at the Georgia World Congress Center, the first state-owned convention center established in the United States, and now the third largest convention center in the country.
Originally established in 1844, the meeting has remained the premier gathering in psychiatry today and serves as a symbol of the Association’s commitment to improved patient care through professional education. Hundreds of educational sessions and presentations on the latest research will be featured at the meeting for more than 13,000 attendees from around the globe, including physicians from psychiatric and other mental health disciplines.
Attendees will gain insight and in-depth knowledge designed to help improve patient care by meeting with renowned experts, earning credits, building peer relationships, discovering ground-breaking technology and new therapies and treatment options.
“We are extremely excited not only about the opportunity to be in the presence of so many colleagues in our surrounding area, but for the location,” says Dawes, founder and owner of Brookhaven Retreat. “Atlanta is a rapidly growing city where there are many leaders in mental health. We are looking forward to meeting many new faces, and reconnecting with old friends from years past.”
