Discover U Podcast: A Look into Behavioral Healthcare Conferences in 2022 and Beyond with Jordan Young and Renee Baribeau Host, JD Kalmenson interviews Jordan Young and Renee Baribeau about the new Conference they are launching this April 2022 called “Emerging Themes in Behavioral Health.”
An exciting new West Coast Behavioral Health Conference is coming to Los Angeles this April April 28th- 29th! Emerging Themes in Behavioral Health offers a stellar line up of clinicians and researchers sharing the most current, cutting-edge knowledge on pressing issues in mental health. A world class panel on Treatment Resistant Depression will share their knowledge about promising new technologies like TMS, and alternative treatment options like Ketamine, Psilocybin and Cannabis. Keep up to date on the latest thinking in treating topics like eating disorders, non-traditional relationships, and suicide prevention.
In 2010, Jordan Young’s personal recovery and desire to help others pushed him away from corporate B2B sales and towards behavioral healthcare. He began his career in an admissions role at the corporate headquarters of one of the industry’s most respected companies. In that role, he worked with over 4,000 patients and their families to coordinate treatment with hundreds of treatment centers around the country and facilitate intervention services. Jordan’s aspirations to make a bigger impact on behavioral healthcare led to the creation of Jordan and Associates Consulting in 2018, whose purpose is to leverage the experience, education and thousands of connections made in the industry to help treatment centers overcome obstacles blocking their path to success. Jordan’s core values are shaped by his relationship with God, his family, and his recovery. He is an avid sports fan and the only job that could pull him away from behavioral healthcare is when the Tennessee Titans call to name him their head coach.
