Enhance student well-being and safety. Identify co-occurring substance use and mental health problems

Foster a mental health friendly and stigma-free environment at your school. Provide students with the earliest possible connection to the right resources. Find practical solutions to develop community partners and engage families for early prevention of drug use among youth.
Source key strategies, lessons learned, and best practices to enhance students' wellness. Through case studies, interactive Q&A, and peer-to-peer exchange, you will walk away with knowledge to identify students with concurrent disorders as early as possible.
