Chat Box
On the virtual site, your camera will be off and your audio muted except for select sessions (the moderator will advise you). Please use the chat box on the virtual site to interact with your fellow registrants.  Use this chat area to enter your questions for the speakers.  A moderator will be collecting your questions to ask them at the end of the presentation or the end of the session.

Virtual Conference FAQs
Dear Colleague:
Please join us at the International Society of Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse’s 2021 Annual Conference entitled, “Resiliency in Action: Advocating for Healthy Communities.”  This conference will be held virtually and provides an opportunity to connect with other psychiatric nurses. The virtual platform will not only enable you to attend speaker sessions, but also provides opportunities to connect, network, practice self-care, and discuss ways to advocate for healthier communities. Contact hours are offered as part of your registration. ISPN has applied for 24.75 contact hours. 

Psychiatric nurses fulfill many roles.  One of the exciting reasons to attend ISPN’s conference is that it appeals to all psychiatric nurses, including nursing educators, leaders, clinicians, and researchers. This conference provides a wide range of overall themes of presentations include education/teaching pedagogy, evidence-based practice, research, psychopharmacology, and leadership. 

In addition, ISPN is excited to offer a slate of diverse and prominent keynote speakers, including:

  • Billy Rosa, PhD, MBE, ACHPN, FAANP, FAAN
  • Emily Hauenstein, PhD, LCP, MSN, FAAN
  • John Lowe, RN, PhD, FAAN
  • Lorena Rodríguez, MD
  • Shannon Zenk, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN

The broad range of topics are relevant to what is happening, in not only our field, but in our world today.

Please join us to engage in this call to advocate for improving mental health of our communities across the world!
