at Saint Joseph’s University

Join the discussion about how we can help change the trajectory of those with behavioral health concerns empowering them to be successful in college, in our community & around the world.

This thought-provoking conference will address how we can best identify and support marginalized students on our campuses and work to empower them to succeed and thrive on our campuses.  We will discover the multiple programmatic approaches available while exploring innovative ways to offer support along the continuum of care.

The learning goals of this professional development opportunity are three-fold:

  1. Attendees will gain an increased awareness of the specific needs of students, faculty and staff in or seeking recovery from mental health and substance use disorders on college campuses
  2. Attendees will understand the systems and best practices currently in place to support students in or seeking recovery and explore innovative practices for systems in the future
  3. Attendees will discover ways to build valuable connections with faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, and other partners creating a network of allies to support and grow collegiate recovery efforts on their own campus

This professional development opportunity is open to all undergraduate and graduate students free of charge and just $30 for professionals.  Program presenters will receive one free registration.  Breakfast and lunch are included with registration.
