What: Please join us for a regular meeting of the Austin Area African American Behavioral Health Network. This group meets regularly to network, discuss current topics and hear presentations by mental health consumers, family members and professionals interested in mental wellness in the African American community.

Who: Dr. Jim Jackson, Jr., DD, MS, LCDC of Phoenix House Outpatient will be our guest speaker. Youth today are living in a society where smoking marijuana is socially acceptable and drug usage is prevalent. Many of our youth live with a co-occurring disorder (mental health condition coupled with substance use) and access to drugs is everywhere. Please join us as Dr. Jackson shares information about the current drug trends and usage among youth as well as treatment and resources available to help them recover.

As always, a complimentary lunch will be provided. Click the "Register Now" link below to complete the online registration form. Please forward this invitation to interested colleagues.
