Nearly 1 in 5 or 46.6 million Americans (NIH, 2017) are affected by mental health and substance abuse disorders each year, yet it's estimated less than half receive proper treatment. As professionals, our ability to perform appropriate assessments, and intervene effectively, will enable us to have a positive impact on our clients and in our communities. The conference will focus on trends, developments and specific strategies for dealing with the complexity of co-occurring conditions.
