This year, the Mental Health Association of San Francisco's Annual Conference will bring together peers, advocates, providers, community-based stakeholders, tech developers, and government leaders in a collaborative and actionable learning environment to analyze what’s “crazy” about the mental health system and the world around us to explore innovative solutions.
Our conference will feature interactive screens, mental health app demonstrations, and a cozy branded lounge where attendees can practice self-care and community care. This is possible thanks to Bespoke, our cutting-edge conference venue. Bespoke is conveniently located steps from the Powell BART and MUNI station in Westfield Mall on Level Four.
Hoarding Disorder & Cluttering Behaviors
Peer support and strategies to help create powerful and positive solutions for collecting behaviors.
We welcome mental health experts, policy leaders, providers, researchers, advocates, and individuals living with hoarding and cluttering challenges to foster collaboration in an environment of learning and discovery.
Wellness & Community Care
Self-care and community-care as vital to maintaining personal wellness and preventing crises.
Attendees will leave with an understanding of several practical techniques for cultivating wellness though self-care as well as an overview of community resources. Emphasis will be placed on the personal, structural, and financial benefits of preventative care.
Mental Health @ Work
How employers can champion mental health and well-being in the workplace by exploring ways they can ensure employees experience their jobs in a meaningful and purposeful way.
In order to build an organizational culture that embraces recovery and wellness, it is critical to provide employees with access to mental health education, resources, and relevant training to avoid burnout, reduce the risk of suicide, and prevent crisis through the guidance and direction of organizational leadership. Whether you’re a non-profit employer seeking to hire and retain peer-identified staff or a private-sector employer looking to optimize your workforce’s mental health, we invite you to share your expertise, wellness practices, and challenges your organization faces.
Mental Health + Technology
Linking mental health and technology by exploring innovative tech supports and discussing standards and accountability practices to ensure that tech actively helps users with mental health challenges.
We invite both tech developers and tech users to be a part of this collaborative conversation on creating cultural change in the ways we think about and respond to mental health needs.
Want to be a part of a new mental health movement? Attend our conference as we join together to make the mental health system less "crazy" and more accessible for everyone.
We are inviting engaging presentations on how to integrate a fractured mental health system through innovative solutions that avoid expensive, emergency care services.
