NAADAC's Director of Training, Thomas Durham, recently attended and spoke at the 2016 National Zarrow Mental Health Symposium in Tulas, OK. The annual symposium focuses on issues pertinent to homelessness and included about 1,000 participants at this multi-day event. It is presented through a partnership between Community Solutions, a New York-based non-profit that has organized the national campaign Zero: 2016, and Mental Health Association Oklahoma, an Oklahoma-based non-profit that is a nationally recognized leader in permanent supportive housing and peer recovery services.
Durham presented a two hour workshop entitled Understanding Co-Occurring Disorders with At-Risk Populations, which focused on co-occurring disorders and their commonality among those who are homeless. Counselors, outreach workers, and therapists were in attendance.
