PRESENTATION:  Starting with a young adult perspective in growing up with, and relying on, technology and its impact on human development, and then extending into a research-based power point presentation, presenter will create a space for dialogue with audience members about the role that connectedness to technology, e.g. mobile-based and social media, plays in youth development of all ages; communication and relationships with others; and how these factors relate to signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression.  As providers on the substance use continuum of care, we know that mood disorders may often accompany substance misuse, so being well-informed of the impact that connectedness to technology has on youth of all ages is an important component for effective assessment and delivery of services.

PRESENTER:   Ann Duckless, MA has worked for NAMI NH for the past 11 years in the Connect Suicide Prevention Program, providing suicide prevention, postvention, and mental health trainings to community, military, college, and tribal nation settings. She has also gained over 20 years of experience in the field of substance use continuum of care. Ann’s varied professional work experiences including teaching at the high school and college levels, inpatient and outpatient counseling for substance use disorders, youth prevention community work at the statewide level, and a collaborative systems perspective in dealing with public health issues.
