Are you LGBTQ+? Are you also neurodivergent? This club may be for you!

Neurodivergent is a term referencing anybody who has:

mental/emotional trauma

a mental illness/disorder

a personality disorder

a neurological/intellectual/learning disability/disorder

physical brain trauma

Many people within the LGBTQ+ community are neurodivergent in some way, and it can be difficult to find spaces for folks to feel safe and accepted while discussing these topics. This subgroup is a good place to hang out, talk about your experiences, discuss the intersection between queerness and neurodivergency, and to have a good time!

 

In order to join, we host our meetings over the LGBTESS Discord Server! To join, fill out the survey here: https://oregon.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5jdSlf3KXEuduOW

October 5 2021–June 7 2022

Prevention and intervention rely on collaboration, but often those who work in this field of work find themselves in silos. One gap recognized was lack of connection among alcohol and other drug prevention, intervention, and recovery staff across the state of Oregon's institutions of higher education.

With support from Oregon Health Authority and leadership from the University of Oregon, the Oregon Prevention Coalition was formed.

Since its first meeting in the summer of 2020, the coalition has created a space for staff to build relationships, receive training, and garner statewide collaboration. The coalition meets on the first Tuesday of each month and averages one training each quarter.

Initially focused on public, four-year institutions, as of winter 2021 the coalition is expanding to community colleges. Eventually, the coalition will encompass the state’s private colleges and universities.
