Dr. Kelly-Ann Allen writes that a sense of belonging, “is a fundamental human need that predicts numerous mental, physical, social, economic and behavior outcomes”. If this is true, do we have a responsibility to make sure everyone in our communities feel like they belong? What’s the individual community member’s responsibility? This interactive session will explore these questions and how forms of exclusion can lead to substance use/misuse. Finally, attendees will be placed in groups to discuss and brainstorm strategies to recruit and retain diverse community members to lead prevention initiatives.
