Identifying & Responding to Signs of Impairment or Substance Misuse

Room 045, Health Studies
Facilitated by Dana Naismith, Assistant Professor (Faculty of Health Studies, Winnipeg Campus– Psychiatric Nursing)

Accessible via Zoom by request.

People of all ages use substances for various reasons, many of which can be accessed legally as well as illegally.  Both types of substances may alter a person’s mood and/or behavior, but not everyone will have the same signs and symptoms.

Join Dana for a one hour presentation and discussion that will explore the following:

  • What is substance misuse/addiction
  • Brief overview around the different types of substances people use
  • Common side effects (behavioural and physical) of the substances most commonly used by University students
  • How and when should I respond if I suspect one of my students is misusing substances
  • Resources
