Behavioral Health Workforce Forum

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and NAADAC - The Association for Addiction Professionals are supporting outreach across the nation to interest college students in selecting a career in Behavioral Health.  The New England region was selected as one of four sites for a live event, with the opportunity to host local satellite events tailored for local participants either simulcast or later using a YouTube video from the  main event.  This page will be updated to provide information on the main event in NH and satellite Massachusetts events as it becomes available.

  • Date: September 14, 2016
