NAADAC and SAMHSA have joined forces to reach out to build awareness and educate freshman and sophomore college/university students about the benefits and opportunities in the substance use and mental health disorder professions in the hope of increasing the number of college/university students choosing to enter the behavioral health field and specializing in these disciplines.
This Workforce Forum will focus on: the rewarding benefits of the substance use and mental health disorder disciplines that deliver not only a fulfilling life of helping others, but the opportunity for advancement and creativity; the state's workforce needs; state certification and licensing requirements and national certification opportunities; networking and mentoring connections; and other professional development opportunities. The forum will be streamed online live and captured for future digital distribution through NAADAC.
Type of Event:
Conference (including substance use and/or mental disorders, treatment, recovery or related issues as a focus)
Education (townhall meeting, class, workshop, lecture or training for community and general public, policymakers, social service and criminal justice organizations, etc.)
