BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - National and regional experts on behavioral health are gathering in Bismarck next week.

The North Dakota Department of Human Services’ fall 2015 Behavioral Health Conference is scheduled for Sept. 1-3 at the Best Western Ramkota Hotel.

The conference will feature experts who will address stigma and share information and training on evidence-based services, clinical practices and integrated ways to promote awareness, prevention, intervention and treatment.

Behavioral Health Division Director Pam Sagness says behavioral health is an important part of overall wellness, and the conference is an opportunity to discuss integrated services and effective strategies for recovery.

She says that thousands of North Dakotans have behavioral health needs, and family members, friends, co-workers and others are also affected.
