Event Description: 
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.
