So much of a child's long-term outcomes are affected by their earliest experiences. Whilst the AOD sector recognises the crucial need to support the social emotional wellbeing of children who live with parents using substances, there remains significant practice and organisational challenges. This webinar invites you to consider your own practice and how your organisation supports parents who use alcohol and other drugs to have conversations about their children’s mental health using Emerging Minds: National Workforce Centre for Child Mental Health resources.
