YES Community Counseling Center’s (YESCCC) Partnering In Action and Change For Tomorrow (PACT) Grant Initiative and Long Island Prevention Resource Center (LIPRC) invites mental health professionals, social workers, nurses, coaches and licensed substance prevention providers to attend its upcoming VIRTUAL education program Teen Intervene. The FREE VIRTUAL program will be held Tuesday, November 16th and Wednesday, November 17th from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. via ZOOM.

From COVID – 19 to underage drinking and substance use, today’s young adults face a multitude of health risks that will impact their lives, families and our communities. Teen Intervene is an evidence-based prevention intervention for Students and Young Adults (ages 12-19) who drink alcohol heavily and/or have experienced or are at risk for alcohol-related problems such as poor class attendance, missed assignments, accidents or violence. A Harm Reduction Approach, Teen Intervene aims to motivate students to reduce alcohol use in order to decrease the negative consequences of drinking and live a healthier and safer lifestyle.

Teen Intervene will review how timely intervention and access to resources can improve the health and lives of students. This training is approved for Social Work/Licensed Mental Health Counseling CEU’s, NYS OASAS CPP/CPS/CASAC credentialing and renewal. Administrative fee for Social Work/ Licensed Mental Health Counseling CEU Credits is $60 for 6 CEU Credits. To register for the training, contact PACT at 516-799-3203 x230. 

YESCCC’s PACT SPF-PFS Grant Initiative is funded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). PACT addresses our nation’s top substance abuse prevention priorities among youth and young adults (ages 9-20) – underage drinking, marijuana, and opioid use. PACT seeks to understand patterns of underage drinking and substance use to implement targeted evidence-based programs, policies, trainings and education to change the conditions by which youth substance use exists.
