There are challenges and opportunities that face Colorado youth and the professionals that serve them. Closing the Gap is an interactive lesson that facilitates critical thinking about substance use data and the ways in which our perceptions influence teen substance misuse prevention. In this session we’ll be balancing hope and concern as we look at key substance use data (including our 2020 Rise Above Colorado Youth Survey and new Healthy Kids Colorado Survey data collected during the pandemic), identifying opportunities to advance positive community norms and bring youth perceptions more closely in line with reality.
