SALIS/AMHL 2019
Information Professionals: Building Alliances for
Mental Health, Substance Use and Addictions

Substance Abuse Librarians & Information Specialists
Association of Mental Health Librarians

2019 Annual Conference - SALIS's 41st, SALIS/AMHL's 4th
April 23-26, 2019 · Boston, MA, USA


For the 2019 SALIS/AMHL conference, we asked presenters to consider how our work as information professionals could build and even strengthen partnerships among many sectors through collaborating, sharing and engaging.

The result was a dynamic program of presentations on a huge range of topics, from alcohol advertising for youth, the history of mental health treatment, and ways to challenge stigma, to the use of art therapy at all levels of care (providers and patients), supporting mental health literacy, and helping public librarians in their frontline battle against the opioid epidemic.

View the full 2019 program.

As always, SALIS greatly appreciates the support of its generous 2019 Sponsors and Exhibitors!
