Marginalized to Empowered:

Supporting Students with Substance Use and Co-Occurring Disorders

 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.  We will discover the multiple programmatic approaches available while exploring innovative ways to offer support along the continuum of care.

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.
