Grassroots Behavioral Health Marketing Conference Advocates for Mental Health

Grassroots Behavioral Health Marketing Conference Advocates for Mental Health

July 19, 2017 Blog 0 Comments

Building on the success of its freshman event, the 2017 Mental Health Marketing Conference occurs this week — July 20th and 21st–  at Lipscomb University’s Ezell Center in NAshville, TN.

The conference’s goal is to bring a cross-section of mental health professionals  together from around the country — not just marketing — to share information and generate new ideas, approaches, and practices within the space of mental health marketing in order to:

  • equip professionals in the mental health community to de-stigmatize mental illness and
  • lead more people to seek treatment for mental health issues.

The brainchild of Austin Harrison, it’s his “dream to make this a yearly event and, over time, turn Nashville into a model for other cities in the conversation about mental health.” His passion is unmistakable, “simple awareness of the magnitude of this issue and the amount of lives it touches can become a catalyst towards directing more individuals to treatment and supporting them in their journey.”

With speakers from Google, the National Institute for Mental Health (NIMH), elite ad agencies, and forward-thinking behavioral health marketing teams, the conference’s  program and aim attracts a national audience.
