Join us for a series of one-hour webinars about topics related to the prevention and treatment of  substance use disorder and mental health.

You are invited to attend all of the webinars, or only the ones that you are interested in. Each webinar has a specific focus within the mental health and substance use disorder fields. The format of each webinar will be a presentation from a medical or community professional currently working to help people with substance-use disorders. The presenters will share their personal experiences and what they have learned by being involved on the front lines of addiction prevention and treatment.

Through each webinar, it is our goal to provide a professional perspective that combines research and/or evidence-based information along with personal experience to further
understanding, and to hopefully alleviate the stigma about topics that are timely relating mental health and the opioid health crisis.

Objectives: 

Each webinar has its own specific learning objectives.
