Tuesday, August 3, 2021 - Wednesday, August 4, 2021 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us to focus on the complex connections between gender-based violence, substance use and mental health when working with individuals who are receiving shelter and non-shelter services. We willook at current practices at agencies to build on skills when mental health, substance use and gender-based violence co-occur in practice. Presentationgroup discussion and activities with scenarios and skills-based practice, will address when and how to talk about mental health and substance use, how to support an individual with these concerns, application of skills in assessment and how to plan around safety issues of substance use and mental health.  We will open and close with panel discussions exploring different aspects of these topics.
