Recovery Speaker Series wraps up

Imagine being a teenager with a mental illness. Now add substance abuse.

You’ve got what mental health professionals call a dual diagnosis adolescent. A local expert will talk about how culture influences dual diagnosis adolescents at 7:30 p.m. on March 27  in Somers Lounge at the College of St. Scholastica.

The speaker is Michelle Johnson-Jennings, co-

director of Research for Indigenous Community Health and assistant professor in the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy’s Duluth campus.

The free talk will follow a social hour at 6:30 p.m. It’s the final talk in the Recovery Speaker Series sponsored by Clean Recovery Services at St. Scholastica and Hazelden addiction treatment center.
