1 Hour Webinar Training with Ann Duckless

PRESENTATION: Mental health issues often surface in school settings.  Nationally, 1 in 5 youth will experience a serious emotional disorder.  When additional stresses of substance misuse enter the picture, it often becomes more difficult to seek help (on the part of the youth) and to recognize what issues need immediate help (on the part of adults).  This webinar is intended for participants who do not have extensive experience in the field of mental health, since an overview of thought and mood disorders that often impact youth development will be offered, as well as the complicating intersection with substance misuse. It is imperative that we as providers embrace hope with early detection of mental health and substance use disorders, and to openly acknowledge that treatment works, and recovery is possible.

Participants will:

  1. Learn the signs and symptoms of thought and mood disorders and how to effectively intervene.
  2. Understand the complexity of co-occurring disorders, with the intersection of mental health and substance misuse challenges.
  3. Be aware of treatment implications when involving trauma and loss.
