The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) is continuing a Mental & Behavioral Health Webinar Series. The 4-part series will address anxiety, substance misuse, suicide prevention, and intimate partner violence among American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN).
The second Mental and Behavioral Health webinar will explore substance use and misuse during the COVID-19 pandemic in American Indian and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) communities. The discussion will include general background on substance use; how feelings of anxiety, fear, stress and/or worry during the current global pandemic may contribute to increased use; resources and coping mechanisms that may help; and treatment and harm reduction strategies that could help those struggling with addiction; as well as time for questions and answers with all attendees. This webinar is designed for community members, Tribal health and behavioral health professionals, Tribal leaders, and partners alike.
