NCCHC Virtual Fall Conference on Correctional Health Care Highlights Mental Health and Medical Issues for Incarcerated People

The NCCHC Virtual Fall Conference on Correctional Health Care will offer education on health care, mental health, substance abuse disorder treatment, suicide prevention, and other critical topics virtually November 17-18.

The Fall Conference features highlights from the in-person National Conference on Correctional Health Care, taking place October 30-November 3 in Chicago, as well as online exclusive sessions.

“We have so many people who need education and information on best practices, treatment programs, and how to cope with the psychological and physical effects of the pandemic who are not able to travel. This virtual conference will help them catch up and keep up on critical topics,” says NCCHC CEO Deborah Ross, CCHP. Ross notes that “while many want to attend in-person, staffing levels are very tight in some locations.”

Topics of interest to the psychiatric community include compassion fatigue, sleep disorders, COVID-19, opioid withdrawal, trauma-informed treatment, ethics, deposition preparation, suicide prevention, and more.

Participants can log in live on November 17-18 or access sessions on demand through December 31. The conference offers up to 28.75 hours of continuing education credit.
