The 2019 Northeast Behavioral Healthcare Conference will be April 30th-May 1st at The Marriott Syracuse Downtown.

We invite you to join us as we focus on Emerging Faces: Exploring Changing Populations and Perspectives in Behavioral Health.

This growing conference gives professionals the opportunity to develop interdisciplinary approaches to treatment. Our two day conference will provide innovative, evidence-based practice sessions facilitated by national experts and offer continuing education credits for NYS Social Workers, NYS Mental Health Counselors, CASACs, Recreation Therapists, and NYS Certified Peers. Attendees will have the opportunity to earn up to 12 credits across this two-day event.


We are pleased to announce Darryl Strawberry as our Keynote Speaker

Darryl StrawberryAs the first overall draft pick by the NY Mets in 1980, Darryl Strawberry was an impressive figure in the Major League Baseball scene for almost 20 years.  Beginning his Major League career in 1983 as the National League Rookie of the Year, Strawberry consistently demonstrated his talent on the field playing in eight consecutive All-Star Games, becoming one of 39 players to join the exclusive 30-30 club – hitting 39 home runs and stealing 36 bases during the 1987 season, winning two Silver Slugger Awards in 1988 and 1990, as the National League Home Run Leader in 1988, and with four World Series championship wins in 1986, 1996, 1998 and 1999.

Strawberry’s addiction to drugs is well chronicled and dates back to the 1980s during his time with the Mets. He was suspended a total of three times for cocaine use during his career.  Now living in recovery, Strawberry has embraced his sobriety and speaks across the country sharing his story of triumph, tragedy, and healing in his journey to recovery.
