Substance Use and Mental Health Disorders: Supporting Kinship Families
Wednesday, September 14, 2022 @ 10:00am - 11:00amFree
It’s Kinship Care Month! NCSACW invites you to a webinar on services and supports for kinship and grand families affected by substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders.
Kinship care promotes stability and a sense of belonging, particularly as children maintain connections with their family and cultural identity. However, kinship and grandfamilies can face unique challenges when parent(s) of the children in care have a substance use or mental health disorder. These challenges can include ensuring access to specific developmental services for infants and children with prenatal substance exposure as well as tending to children’s emotional, physical, and behavioral challenges across developmental stages.
Join this webinar to learn:
•Specific needs of kinship and grandfamilies affected by substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders
•Services and supports available to help these families succeed
•About the Grandfamilies & Kinship Support Network: A National Technical Assistance Center
