Panel Discussion (9 - 9:50AM)
From January 2022 to January 2023 there was an increase of over 300% in calls to the Montgomery County Police Department for youth non-fatal overdoses. Increased substance use is closely linked to deteriorating mental health and to the prevalence of Fentanyl in our community. The goal is to have medical and mental health professionals more equipped to educate, screen and treat substance misuse.
The City of Rockville will collaborate with Montgomery College and Montgomery Goes Purple for this event which includes a panel discussion; education sessions with professional credits available; and Narcan distribution and training. Also, the event will include sessions on support and resources for mental health and substance-use recovery designed for students, families, and those who support them.
This activity is appropriate for the following audiences:
- Nurse Practitioners
- Social Workers
- Registered Dieticians
- Physician Associates
- Behavorial Health providers
- Dental providers
