HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:

This resource provides a high-level introduction for mentors, programs, and caring adults seeking to understand the opioid epidemic and its potential intersections with impacted young people and mentoring. A trauma-informed mentoring approach serves as the foundation for the guide’s application; adverse childhood experiences and associated protective risk factors are discussed in relation to identifying and referring support measures. This guide seeks to assist in contextualizing the opioid epidemic as a disease.
