Join us on September 9-11 for the Addiction Research & Clinical Health (ARCH) Symposium - Making the Connection: Exploring the Intersectionality of Social Justice and Addiction Care. The ARCH Symposium is unique in that it brings together professionals and experts from several different fields—from physicians and public health experts to counselors and journalists—to take a broader look at addiction care and the many systems involved. Oftentimes, the topics of addiction and recovery focus solely on the individual and overlook the many systems that individuals interact with and how these systems can work with—but more often against—someone seeking care for their substance use.
We’ve all been through a lot lately. As we continue to persevere, let’s remember to make mental health a priority. Problems with mental health are very common in the United States, with an estimated 50% of all Americans diagnosed with a mental illness or disorder at some point in their lifetime.
