A 3-Part Learning Series Session 1: How to be Present for Children Who Experience Emotional and/or Substance Use Challenges

The National Family Support Technical Assistance Center invites caregivers, family peer support specialists, and other members of the mental health and substance use workforce to this 3-part series on how family members can support children who experience mental health and/or substance use challenges during their lifetime.

Join subject matter experts in engaging discussions about attending to both mental health and substance use problems and their complex impact on families. Following a "fireside chat" with experts, participants will be invited to join partitioned breakout sessions based on child age (0 - 12, 13 - 17, 18 - 25, 26 and up.) Breakout discussions will be led by moderators who will invite attendees to share their lived experiences, questions, concerns, unique challenges, resources and support, as they relate to supporting children in each age group. After the breakout sessions, we will reconvene to synthesize ideas and identify goals for next steps. The topics and issues raised in breakout rooms during Session 1 will guide the program for Sessions 2 (May) and 3 (June).
