Event Description:

"Building a Life Beyond Homelessness"

The 2020 Tenth Annual CIBHS Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) Symposium is focused on practices and strategies that have demonstrated effectiveness for working with adults, children, and families with behavioral health challenges who concurrently experience homelessness or housing insecurity.


California is currently facing a homelessness and housing crisis on a scale never seen.Nearly 25% of the nation's homeless were counted in California in 2018. This represents 130,000 homeless individuals, including families, young adults,veterans, and adults (U.S. Dept of Housing and Urban Development, 2018). Some homeless individuals also report having a serious mental illness (1 in 4) or substance use disorder (1 in 6; Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, 2018). Meanwhile, rising housing costs, a lack of affordable housing, and the impact of gentrification in California contribute to the ongoing crisis, resulting in an estimated shortage of over one million homes for low income individuals and families (National Low Income Housing Coalition, 2018).

Who should attend?

Each year, this conference brings together behavioral health practitioners, administrators,agencies, funders, and advocates to learn more about effective practices,approaches, and strategies for improving the lives of adults, children, and families receiving behavioral health services. In recent years, the symposium has also attracted healthcare, education, forensic, and other professionals in areas with an interest in improving life outcomes for shared constituents. We hope to broaden the range of participation and collaboration even further with this multi-sector theme.
