About Event

The Unconference for Social Wellness is a free event aiming to foster dialogue and collaboration across behavioral health specialists, integrative clinicians, and innovative community leaders.

Doors open at 9:30am, and the event will start at 10:00 with a brief kickoff talk. Please arrive before 10!

​With this event, we're asking: how can in-person social spaces for communities foster connection and positive health outcomes? What are workable models of collaboration between formal and informal care professionals?

​An unconference is a day of impromptu, short-format talks and opportunities for connection across normal professional boundaries. Unlike a normal conference, no formal talks or presentations will be given; following an introductory talk we'll break out into groups based on themes we find interesting.

Social wellness themes we'll be discussing:

  • ​Embedding psychiatric and therapeutic care work into community settings

  • ​Collaboration between licensed professionals and community leaders / paraprofessionals in informal carework roles (healers, clergy, nonprofit leaders, community organizers)

  • ​Implementing biopsychosocial and culturally-informed care models

  • ​Financial models and incentives for financing public-private partnerships for third spaces, social wellness initiatives, bathhouses, social prescribing schemes

  • ​Reimbursement pathways (value based care, fee-for-service, HSA/FSA, patient-funded) for alternative social care spaces

  • ​Loneliness / social isolation interventions related to the built environment (urban mobility, public parks and space, street life)

  • ​Extending social wellness to underprivileged medicare medicaid populations

​Who's invited?

​We welcome:

Behavioral Health Clinicians & Wellness Professionals: mental health clinicians, licensed therapists, licensed social workers, psychiatrists, coaches, counselors.

Innovative Community Leaders + Entrepreneurs: Community leaders and organizers, facilitators and guides, clergy, spacemakers, and local wellness entrepreneurs.
