Four Reasons to Attend NatCon24


Making the decision to attend a conference isn’t an easy one. From booking your travel and hotel to spending time away from family and work, there’s a lot to consider.

And then there’s the event itself: How do you know which is the right one for you? How can you be sure the curriculum offers the knowledge you need to grow professionally?

To help you determine if NatCon24 — our conference taking place in St. Louis from April 15-17 — is a good educational fit, here are four things to consider:

  1. We’re hosting the most sought-after speakers. Few conferences can say they’re bringing Former First Lady Michelle Obama to the stage! Mrs. Obama will join us on April 17 for a keynote conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Isabel Wilkerson.
  2. We’re the biggest event in behavioral health care. With 5,000+ attendees, 500+ speakers, 250+ sessions and 150+ exhibitors representing all areas of our field, we are the largest conference in mental health and substance use. See for yourself!
  3. We put the “higher” in higher education. We’re offering more continuing education and continuing medical education credits than any other conference in our field — more than 150, actually. It’s just one of the many ways we’re investing in you.
  4. We prioritize fun and relaxation. From a wellness spa and arcade games to a puppy park and “kitty corner,” we’re incorporating fun activities into the event experience. You can hear from health care experts in the morning and play with adoptable pets in the afternoon!

We hope you’ll join us and thousands of health care professionals for three days of learning, networking and entertainment. Be sure to act fast — NatCon24 is right around the corner!
