The outbreak of COVID-19 is stressful - it can be difficult to cope with fear and anxiety, changing daily routines and a general sense of uncertainty. Our communities are struggling with economic, financial, and mental stressors. During these uncertain times, drinking and drug use tend to rise and those who abuse alcohol and/or other drugs, are particularly vulnerable to high risk events. The purpose of this training is to bring additional awareness and resources to assist when our communities are stressed. The content will also include helpful tools and resources that offer substance abuse and suicide prevention assistance for our community.
