December 7, 2021
Join our upcoming webinar on December 7 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. ET to learn strategies and about resources for implementing youth screening, brief intervention and referral to treatment (YSBIRT) for youth substance use. Clinicians and organizations either interested in learning more about YSBIRT prior to getting started or those already screening youth for substance use will benefit from the perspective of panelists from primary care, mental health and integrated care settings across the country. Along with National Council experts, panelists will discuss successes and challenges for getting started with YSBIRT, communicating the importance of YSBIRT, impacts of COVID-19 and strategies for engaging with teens, families, and other clinicians and partners.
