-- National Mental Health Community Symposium founder Margie Barilla, A vetting process for our speakers, resource exhibitors, or sponsors is a requirement to partner or collaborate in any of the symposiums, she said. Barilla acknowledged the "extra step" may frustrate treatment centers. "It's unfortunate, but this is one way the market gets cleaner and people get the help they deserve; people first, quality patient care, and service excellence is our mission" she said.
We extended the platform to our current vetted relationships giving them priority to list their resource. Any new listing submissions are placed on a wait list and will begin reviewing at the end of September. The response we have received since announcing yesterday definitely shows the desire for our profession domestically and internationally. Mass emails sent to our current relationships and sponsors to confirm their participation. Margie Barilla makes it clear we are here for the community to equip and educate them further to research program/s they choose from detailed questions Are you accredited?, Where does majority of your patients come from?, and When was your last inspection and outcome?. Founder plans on finalizing relationships with health insurance companies implementing vetting process, audits of applications, and answering complaints end of 2018. For more information:
