Webinar: Mental illness 101: A practical primer series for Faith Communities, Part 1

Part I: Mental Illness 101: What Are Co-Occurring Disorders?

People experiencing a mental health condition often struggle with an overlapping—or what the medical community calls co-occurring—disorders, such as a opioid use disorder. 

The inaugural webinar in our Mental Illness 101 series will pay special attention to the current opioid crisis and how the misuse of these highly addictive substances could be masking mental health concerns.

Using the most up-to-date research, Prof. David E. Jenkins, Psy.D., will identify specific signs and symptoms when someone might have a co-occurring disorder, and how everyday leaders can refer such individuals to the appropriate level of care.
