 Wisconsin received one of 16 grants from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to improve access to treatment and support services for youth and young adults ages 16 – 25 who have, or are at risk of developing, a serious mental health condition. One of the purposes of the grant is to increase public awareness and provide cross-system provider training.

This two-day conference held at UW-Whitewater features keynote speakers and breakout sessions with national, state, and local experts in youth and young adult development, mental health and substance abuse issues, national models of youth engagement, and other best practices to support and engage young adults with behavioral health challenges. A range of providers who work in a variety of capacities to support youth and young adults who live with, or are at risk of developing, serious mental health and substance abuse conditions will have an opportunity to connect and increase their awareness on an array of topics, services, and useful tools.

This activity is pending approval for continuing education hours by the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (CRCC).
