Description

Clinton Substance Awareness and Prevention Coalition and SJ Call-In Coalition have created a SUD/DEI partnership to help build protective factors in our community, a predominately white, rural, conservative area in Mid-Michigan.

We will be highlighting data and narratives to show connection between substance use and suicide in marginalized populations, the importance of creating a culture of belonging and inclusion as a protective factor. Discuss collaborative community activities and conversational skills.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

1. Understand the importance on connecting DEI to prevention work.

2. Have tangible ideas of community projects and activities that support both SUD prevention and DEI

3. Learning the importance of creating a culture of belonging and inclusion as a protective factor
