Date: Thursday, April 26, 2018

- Review data on the prevalence of serious mental illness and substance use disorders among college students.

- Discuss opportunities for colleges and communities to provide recovery support services to help students at risk of developing, or experiencing, a serious mental illness or substance use disorder.
