Description

We are pleased to be hosting a conference addressing substance use and mental health, Before Stage 4.

As a community, when we think about cancer or heart disease we treat them before the critical stage 4. In fact, we treat those diseases early, even starting with prevention! We believe substance use and mental illness should also be treated before stage 4.

Mental Health America of Southwestern PA’s Before Stage 4 Conference: Addressing Mental Health and Substance Use aims to educate attendees about pressing issues regarding the current state of substance use and mental health in our region and treating them before stage 4. This conference seeks to engage professionals, academics, and community members in achieving this goal. Conference speakers and workshop discussions will not only shed light on the current state of affairs and evidence based practices, but will also provide an interactive forum and an opportunity for open discussion with stakeholders from across the continuum of care (including individuals in recovery, law enforcement, and medical providers).

Full conference detail and workshop information can be found here.
