As levels of anxiety and depression and other mental health needs have soared during the pandemic, many students have begun or increased their substance use as a coping mechanism. The recent legalization of marijuana will have a major impact in terms of student access and the dangerous public messaging that may lead students to have a false sense that marijuana use is a safe choice. This session will review the protocols that should be in place to address the overlapping needs of students struggling w/ mental health and substance use issues, and review the roles of all key players in that process.
