Youth Mental Health & Substance Abuse Webinar

Join Chase Cotten, Community Director at The Willow Center in Brownsburg, IN, for a brief and meaningful deep-dive into mental health and substance use. Attendees will have the opportunity to observe relevant data, will hear real-life examples, and will be introduced to scientific and social concepts related to a young person’s experience of mental health and substance use. Most importantly, attendees will leave the workshop equipped with not only helpful knowledge, but practical tools they can use in their work to support young people in an evidence-based way.

Learning Objectives

  1. To gain a better understanding of the link between trauma and mental health or substance use problems.
  2. To destigmatize our understanding of addiction and mental illness through data, brain science, and down-to-earth interpersonal experience.
  3. To know what to do and what resources are available when you or someone you know is in need of help or support.
