Webinar: Stopping behavioral health and substance use disorders where they start: Prevention and treatment in adolescence

Behavioral health concerns, such as anxiety and depression are common among adolescents, as is substance use. Half of all behavioral health problems begin by age 14 and youth from 12-20 years of age account for about one-tenth of all alcohol consumed in the United States, with crises such as COVID-19 only increasing challenges. In this peer-to-peer conversation, we will hear from national leaders about how they are innovating to prevent and intervene in adolescent behavioral health and/or substance use disorders. This is the fourth conversation in a four-part dialogue series to inspire visionary change in mental health promotion, prevention, and treatment for children and families in the Nation’s Capital.
