HMP Launches Educational Conference for Early-Career Mental Health Clinicians
Elevate by Psych Congress will further bolster company’s multi-channel presence in mental health
Malvern, PA (October 24, 2016) — HMP Communications Holdings, LLC a leader in healthcare content and continuing medical education events, today announced the launch of Elevate by Psych Congress, a new offering that will bring together future leaders in mental health for three days of learning, networking and collaboration. The inaugural gathering will take place March 3-5, 2017 in San Francisco.
Elevate is designed to help early-career clinicians advance their knowledge, their career paths and, ultimately, the field of mental health. The three-day conference and exhibition will include a variety of CME/CE-accredited educational sessions uniquely tailored to the needs of emerging clinicians and will feature the nation’s leading minds in psychiatry and mental health, combined with breakout thinkers who challenge the status quo.
“We have always been committed to education that not only focuses on the present, but the future of mental health,” said Randy Robbin, president of the North American Center for Continuing Medical Education (NACCME), a subsidiary of HMP. “With the launch of Elevate, we’re taking that commitment to the next level, creating a more targeted offering that more comprehensively addresses the needs of this segment. We’re excited to be introducing it to emerging leaders in the field.”
The launch bolsters HMP’s already strong presence in the mental health space. In 2012, the company acquired the U.S. Psychiatric & Mental Health Congress, known now as Psych Congress, the nation’s largest, independent educational conference focused on psychopharmacology, psychotherapy and wellness. The company also produces Psych Congress Regionals, a series of 1-day meetings held across the U.S. and Psych Congress Network, the year-round digital portal featuring mental health news, research and perspectives from leaders in the field.
“This new offering supports our corporate strategy of a multi-channel and customized approach to healthcare education and information delivery,” said Jeff Hennessy, chairman and CEO, HMP Communications Holdings. “Elevate is an exciting addition to our robust mental health portfolio and a clear demonstration of our commitment to premier education that improves patient care.”
Elevate adds to a year of significant activity for the company, stemming from both organic launches and acquisitions. Earlier this year, HMP announced the introduction of the Clinical Pathways Congress, a three-day meeting bringing together oncology leaders to discuss how pathways can align with provider, payer and patient needs. In June, the company announced the acquisition of two prominent meetings delivering world-class endovascular and interventional education, the International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET) and the Symposium on Clinical Interventional Oncology (CIO).
In 2017, HMP will produce more than 260 national, regional and local events across a range of therapeutic areas.
