Athletics Coaches SBIRT Training

Time

6:00pm  — 7:30pm

Location

Wellness Center
This training will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to assess and get students connected to confidential substance use services.

My name is Lauren Johnson, and I am the new College Prevention Coordinator here at SUNY Purchase. I was hired under a new 5-year OASAS grant that is working to address alcohol, tobacco and other drug (ATOD) use on campus. Through a thorough and ongoing needs assessment with have identified some ATOD trends that we will be using to fuel our data-driven prevention programming and health education to help our student athletes before they start to experience negative outcomes of use.

That’s where you come in; I’ve had a number of faculty and staff members ask me how they can help if they notice a student is at risk. Most are worried they cannot get the student help without getting them in trouble. I am offering Purchase Athletics a series of trainings for the coaches and athletics staff to provide information and train on how to get at-risk students connected to help in a safe and confidential manner. This information is good for our campus athletes but can be translated to other campuses, communities and families.

 

Trainings are free and include dinner. Please indicate special dietary requests in RSVP message box.
