COVID-19 Impact on the Treatment of Youth with Co-Occurring Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders

This webinar is designed most specifically for clinicians providing direct care to youth and families and to those supervising these clinical staff. It will also benefit those concerned about designing programming for youth and families.


The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly altered delivery of clinical services to all in need, but has proven especially challenging for programs that serve youth with co-occurring substance use and mental health needs. Often, youth with co-occurring and multiply-occurring needs are best matched with intensive, home/community-based programs. Home/community-based service delivery to youth and families with high risk and multiple areas of need is challenging under the best of conditions. The physical distancing precautions and associated virtual/telehealth adaptations have only added to these existing challenges. This Learning Community Webinar is designed to support providers with strategies for engaging and maintaining youth with multiple areas of need in our new environment, and to provide a platform for a sharing of ideas regarding ‘lessons learned’.
