NAADAC and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)'s Regional Administrators to their Single State Authorities (SSAs) have joined forces to reach out to build awareness and educate freshman and sophomore college/university students about the benefits and opportunities in the susbtance use and mental health disorder professions in the hope of increasing the number of college/university students choosing to enter the behavioral health field and specilazing in these disciplines.
These four Workforce Forums, located throughout the country, will focus on: the rewarding benefits of the substance use and mental health disorder disciplines that deliver not only a fulfilling life of helping others, but the opportunity for advancement and creativity; each state's workforce needs; state certification and licensing requirements and national certification opportunities; networking and mentoring connections; and other professional development opportunities. All four forums will be streamed online live and captured for future digital distribution through NAADAC. Please see individual forums below for registration and specific training descriptions.
