Join Us: Facebook Live with Child Mind Institute to Discuss Teen Substance Use & Mental Health


“How worried should I be if I know my son is smoking pot and has anxiety?”

“My daughter is becoming more and more moody and is worried about everything. Is this a sign that she may be using substances, or is she depressed? Or both?”

Join us on Thursday, April 18 from 3:00-3:30 p.m. EDT for a Facebook Live discussion about substance use and mental health disorders in teens and young adults. Tune in to hear from experts, Sarper Taskiran, MD, Child Mind Institute, and Pat Aussem, LPC, MAC, Director of Clinical Content and Development at Center on Addiction + Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, as they will offer tips for identifying substance use and misuse, along with next steps for evaluation and treatment.
