As campuses reopen, how can college leaders help students who have struggled with alcohol and drug use and mental health issues during the pandemic? In ACTA’s webinar, The Pandemic and Campus Substance Use: What Colleges Need to Know Now, four distinguished health experts explored this topic in all of its dimensions, from research to practical solutions on the ground. Panelists included Robert L. DuPont, M.D. of the Institute for Behavior and Health; Amelia M. Arria,Ph.D. of the University of Maryland School of Public Health; Ellen Rome, M.D., M.P.H. of the Center for Adolescent Medicine at Cleveland Clinic Children’s; and Caleb S. Boswell, L.L.P.C., N.C.C. of the Office of Counseling & Career Planning at Washtenaw Community College.
