African Americans have less access to mental health than their White counterparts, are less likely to receive needed care, and are more likely to receive poor quality care when they are treated. In this workshop participants will be provided with activities aimed to increase awareness of their unconscious biases.
Join us In Person at Northwest AHEC at 475 Deacon Boulevard, Winston Salem, NC.
This conference will unite the behavioral health community while highlighting the voices of people with lived experiences to discuss new treatment strategies, connect and engage with national and influential leaders, and take away critical knowledge to address the significant changes in addiction treatment, harm reduction strategies, and build new partnerships.
This two-day virtual conference, hosted by the UNCG and NCAT Joint Programs in Social Work funded through the Health Resources and Service Administration (HRSA) Opioid Workforce Education Program, will offer students, behavioral health and substance use professionals, field instructors, and community partners opportunities to learn from experts in the field of substance use prevention, treatment and recovery from a cultural humility and racial equity lens.
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.
