Elevate by Psych Congress Aims to Reshape Mental Health Care Through Education

With the thriving medical and digital health ecosystem of Boston serving as backdrop, nearly 300 psychiatry and mental health clinicians – a mix of early-career professionals and others interested in applying new ideas and approaches to rethink and reshape mental health care – will convene for the third annual Elevate by Psych Congress, taking place March 8-10 at the Westin Boston Waterfront. The meeting is organized by HMP, a leader in health care education and events.

The 2019 educational program explores a range of important topics including pyschopharmacology, addiction, and telepsychiatry, offers access to some of the nation’s leading minds in psychiatry and mental health, and emphasizes practical takeaways.

Delivering the 2019 keynote will be best-selling author John Elder Robison, Neurodiversity Scholar in Residence and founder of the Neurodiversity Program at the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, VA. In a session based on his new book Switched On, a follow up to his international bestseller, Look Me in the Eye, Robison continues sharing details of his extraordinary memoir about growing up with Asperger’s and the impact of participating in a pioneering brain therapy study designed to understand and address the issues at the heart of autism and Asperger’s.                    

A featured session “Re-Designing Mental Healthcare,” presented by J. Andrew Chacko, MD, MSE, FAPA, a psychiatrist and engineer, and founder and principal at ChackoMD, will discuss how to apply the principles of design thinking, heavily utilized in Silicon Valley, to health care.

The final day of Elevate 2019 features re:Think, a series of short, dynamic TED-style talks designed to spark deep conversation, critical thinking, and new ideas to improve patient care.

With a smaller, more intimate setting than its larger sister conference, Psych Congress, that annually attracts more than 3,000 clinicians from around the world, Elevate is different. The meeting is specially designed to expose participants to new ideas and new ways of thinking about mental health, in addition to providing unique career-building opportunities through professional advisement, resume reviews, and impactful, one-to-one networking.

“Like many early-career psychiatrists, I had a dream of what I wanted to do, but was not sure exactly how to get there,” said Elevate Planning Committee Member Charles Raison, MD, Mary Sue and Mike Shannon Chair for Healthy Minds, Children & Families; Professor, Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine and Public Health, University of Wisconsin-Madison. “To my knowledge, Elevate is the first conference created specifically for future-focused mental health clinicians. The conference covers the gamut, from what clinicians need to know now, to what they will want to know in 10 years. I am most looking forward to mentoring attendees who, like me, have a dream of working in academic environments and finding a balance of clinical work and research. This is a very special meeting, where, working together, we have the opportunity to improve mental health care through transformative education.”

Attendees can earn up to 15.5 continuing education (CE), continuing medical education (CME), continuing nursing education (CNE), and American Academy of PA (AAPA) credits.
