When Mental Health and Substance Use Collide

April 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Partnership to End Addiction

While we continue our recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States is facing an increasing mental health and substance use crisis. Overdoses and deaths of despair are at record highs while the mental health of our adolescents and young adults continues to decline. Substance use can be the “answer” when it comes to anxiety, depression, paranoia, boredom, weight management, etc., and it seemingly works — at least in the short-run. Over time, it can lead to not only worsening mental health but also a substance use disorder. Learn more about co-occurring disorders, their prevalence, and the importance of integrated care.
