CAN’s New Partnership to Further Engage Providers and Clinicians

Caregiver Action Network is proud to announce a dynamic new partnership with Psych Congress. This partnership will not only bring family caregivers’ voices to the table and elevate them to providers and clinicians, but will help to fulfill CAN’s mission of promoting resourcefulness and respect for the more than 90 million family caregivers across the country.

For more than 36 years, Psych Congress has delivered practical, case-based education to an exceptional community of mental healthcare providers across the country. Psych Congress is the US’ largest independent mental health educational conference and a place to fill up on countless practical pearls to better personalize treatment strategies. They serve as a unique, integrated forum to connect members of the entire mental health team—bringing together psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, psychologists, primary care physicians, and other mental health professionals for practical education to improve patient care.

“We are excited for what this innovative new partnership with Psych Congress will bring,” said CAN CEO Marvell Adams Jr., “It is critical that the family caregiver perspective be a part of providers’ and clinicians' continued learnings, because of the critical role that we know family caregivers play in the day-to-day care of their loved ones.”

“We are thrilled to announce the partnership between CAN and Psych Congress,” said President and Chief Learning Officer of HMP Education, Randy Robbin. “This partnership further enhances the Psych Congress mission to improve patient care, as family caregivers play a critical role in the ongoing care of their loved ones. It is essential that we incorporate these unique and comprehensive perspectives into the ongoing education of clinicians and providers. Together, we have the opportunity to increase the quality of care among millions of families nationwide.”
