Co-Occurring Disorders: a conversation about Mental Health and Substance Misuse/Addiction
Mental health and substance use disorders often go hand in hand. Co-Occurring Disorders (COD) is
the combination of one or more mental health challenges and substance misuse/addiction. Join us for this important conversation with Stephanie Marquesano, founder and president of the harris-project, a non-profit focused on the prevention and treatment of COD. Launched after the death of her 19-year-old-son in 2013. Stephanie will highlight potential pathways to use, explore risk and protective factors, share tips on how to engage youth in critical conversations about COD, and empower us with knowledge about when and how to ask for help.
