This year, Mental Health America of Indiana will be hosting the annual Mental Health and Addiction Symposium in conjunction with the Heroes for Recovery Luncheon at the Marriott East and will also be streamed virtually! We are expecting well over 500 people to attend this signature—and now hybrid—event!
As we begin to build a new crisis system in Indiana, we must recognize the growing gap in funding for mental health and addiction programs and services in Indiana and across this country. Behavioral health stakeholders must respond by re-inventing old strategies and creating new and innovative ways for our Hoosier community to become even more involved in our work and mission.
Stress, anxiety, grief, depression, suicide and addiction are affecting many Hoosiers across the state. There has never been a more pertinent moment in time to help Hoosiers living with mental health conditions and addictive disorders than now.
The Annual Mental Health and Addiction Symposium will include workshops that are focused on research findings in Forensic Treatment, the final report on the Indiana Behavioral Health Commission, and a special presentation by the Lieutenant Governor, Suzanne Crouch.
Join us as we discuss Research to Treatment: Understanding the New Crisis System.
The Annual Symposium is hosted in partnership with the Indiana Division of Mental Health and Addiction, and with the Indiana University Department of Psychiatry. We thank them for their support!

This year’s Symposium will also integrate our annual Heroes for Recovery event, which will be hosted during the lunch hour at the Symposium.
Heroes for Recovery is Mental Health America of Indiana’s annual recognition program that celebrates the dedication and commitment of those that truly promote recovery of individuals in their ongoing treatment of serious and persistent mental illness and addictive disorders. Our program celebrates these Heroes and their families.
Each nominee will be recognized with a congratulatory letter and an invitation to the program. A selection committee made up of our partner organizations will select exemplary Heroes to be recognized during the December 9th, 2022 Mental Health and Addiction Symposium, Heroes for Recovery Luncheon.
This year’s symposium is being organized in collaboration with our coworkers at the MHAI Stanley W. DeKemper Training Institute!
