Integrating Substance Use Prevention and Intervention into a Multi-Tiered System of Support

Kelly Perales, LCSW, Co-Director of the Midwest PBIS Network

This keynote will highlight how the core features of a Multi-Tiered System of Support can be used to align and integrate the work of substance abuse prevention and intervention within schools. Core features will be defined and examples provided of how multidisciplinary teams, including community partners, can support these efforts. When we give equal priority to creating nurturing environments that support the social-emotional-behavioral health of all, we can create equity and excellence in education.
