New asynchronous online mentor training course!

Your mentors need basic information about opioids and guidance for how they can be supportive and helpful to their mentees, who may be recovering, using, or at risk of using opioids or other drugs.

The Mentoring Substance Abuse-Affected Youth (MSAY) course is a key resource for your mentoring programs, if you are interested in training your mentors about opioids, how opioids can affect the lives of mentees, and practical strategies mentors can easily learn and use in their everyday interactions to be a positive change agent in the lives of their mentees.

Mentors need basic background information about what are opioids, and how and why people start using them, what are red flags that youth may be using, as well as training on strategies tailored to their mentee’s needs:

  • Understand the pathways to addiction
  • Learn how to support positive growth in their mentees
  • Learn key goals for their mentees, who may be negatively impacted by exposure to opioids or other drugs

Lessons

The Mentoring Substance Abuse-Affected Youth course includes four core lessons:

  1. Why train mentors about opioids and other drugs?
  2. What are opioids?
  3. Why do people use opioids?
  4. How can mentors be positive change agents in the lives of their mentees?

Mentors also pick one additional topic from this list:

  1. How can mentors support mentees who are in treatment or recovery from drug use?
  2. How can mentors support mentees who are close to someone who is misusing opioids or other drugs?
  3. How can mentors support mentees who are at great risk for using opioids or other drugs due to exposure to key risk factors?
