Leading in the mental health system requires us to navigate continuously changing and evolving regulations and mandates.

This environment proves particularly challenging when the needs of communities in the Pacific Southwest region are varied and shifting. This session will cover how adaptive leaders in mental health can effectively manage change and address multiple competing needs.
