2023 Presentations

Our 2023 panelists developed a wide variety of wonderful presentations, talks, and roundtables around the theme of community and connection in disaster behavioral health. We are incredibly thankful to the talented, knowledgeable folks who presented talks on their own experiences, the programs and initiatives they run, and their research and innovative ideas. Below, registrants can find PDFs of the presentations provided to us by presenters for review. If you are a presenter from 2023 and would like to include your presentation or talking points here, please email us a copy of them at [email protected].
