Our Events

At the heart of PCI’s mission is education, advocacy, and collaboration. We understand the  importance of providing treatment that is evidenced-based and grounded in the latest research. Through our own knowledge and research, we facilitate events and presentations to inform our community’s approach to treatment. By hosting these events, we work to strengthen our community of mental health professionals. We also use this knowledge to better inform our patients and their families, so they can better understand the nature of mental health and substance use conditions. In these ways, we work to expand access to resources and reduce the stigma around getting help for mental health and addiction.
