Join us in Conversation
The prolonged uncertainty and circumstances of COVID-19 have led to an increase in mental health issues worldwide, with more people reporting feelings of depression, anxiety, and loneliness. These effects are being felt most by people with Substance Use Disorders. A staggering 25% of essential workers (and 13% of all workers) increased substance use as a result of the pandemic.
An unhealthy relationship with drugs or alcohol affects the relationships, work, happiness, and overall health of both the afflicted and the people around them. And it can disrupt life long before the problems become visible.
Join us from 3-4:30pm ET on Tuesday, October 26 for Substance Use Disorders: Recovery and Support, a conversation about SUD, its warning signs, and various compassionate and effective roads to recovery.
In this conversation, we will discuss:
- The increase in SUD
- Its psychological and social effects
- How to determine if you or someone you know has SUD
- Ways to support someone's recovery
To submit a question to the panel, please email us at email@example.com.
