It took 36 years to build the Washington Monument. 

Those 36 years were marked by disputes, delays, and disappointments. Building required more time, effort, and resources than expected. 

Those working in correctional mental health care can probably relate to that. It is easy to feel discouraged. While the problems are clear, the answers are not. 

But today, just as the monument shines over the nation’s capital as a beacon of strength and hope, we can be that beacon for our patients. 

Come be inspired as the Correctional Mental Health Care Conference shines a light on mental health care. You’ll find ideas, insight, and clarity among clinicians and administrators from a variety of backgrounds who come together for this unique two-day gathering focused on mental health care.
