The Bexar County Behavioral Health and Wellness Conference connects people and families living with mental health or substance use disorders to valuable information and local resources that can help them on their road to recovery.
The 2022 conference brought in over 600 attendees with a good mix of mental health and substance use consumers, professionals and various Bexar County agencies all with a similar goal – to connect people to meaningful information about mental illness, substance use disorders, general health and wellness, and local resources for youth and adults. The conference is located at the Norris Conference Center (618 NW Loop 410) and is presented by The Center for Health Care Services.
