    Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substances:
    A Silent Epidemic

    November 3, 2021 Via Zoom
    One Contact Hour

    The THF was founded in 2004 in memory of Taylor Hooton, who passed away at age 17 after making the uneducated decision to begin using Anabolic Steroids. We are the nation’s leader on delivering research based education programs on use of Appearance and Performance Enhancing Substances –dietary supplements, hGH and anabolic steroids. In addition, over 2 million students now admit to using Anabolic Steroids-1 in every 16 students in America!  Our session will provide a pragmatic view of these drugs –

    • What are they? 
    • Who is using? 
    • What are the social issues and pressures driving their usage? 
    • What are the dangers? 
    As a school nurse, being trained on these topics can not only help address any potential issues in this area, but help facilitate a crucial conversation to our younger generations about how to properly achieve their goals while living and competing the right way!

    Dietary Supplements sales have surpassed the staggering $40 billion mark. Multiple industry studies reveal that as many as 25% of dietary supplements are spiked or contaminated with banned substances. With over 12 million students using these products, our program will discuss how we can help our students navigate this industry. What are Dietary Supplements? Do I need them? What products are high risk? By having this conversation together we can help others become smarter with their supplement use.

    24/7 Connectedness to Technology:
    Its Impact on Human Development and its Role in Anxiety and Depression

    Ann Duckless, MA
    Community Educator and Prevention Specialist, NAMI, NH
    1 Contact Hour

    ** This webinar will not be recorded. 

    PRESENTATION: The presentation will explore emerging research studies about the role that connectedness to technology, e.g. mobile-based and social media, plays in human development of all ages; communication and relationships with others; and how these factors relate to signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression in youth. As providers on the substance use continuum of care, we know that mood disorders may often accompany substance misuse, so being well-informed of the impact that connectedness to technology has on individuals of all ages is an important component for effective assessment and delivery of services. As a result of this webinar participants will be able to:

    1. Discuss research related to the use of technology, its impact and implications for connectedness and communication with people.

    2. Describe findings related to exposure of blue screen emissions on the neuroscience of the brain and effects on sleep patterns.

    3. Explain the correlation of connectedness to technology to the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression in youth

She has also gained over 20 years of experience in the field of substance use continuum of care. Ann’s varied professional work experiences including teaching at the high school and college levels, inpatient and outpatient counseling for substance use disorders, youth prevention community work at the statewide level, and a collaborative systems perspective in dealing with public health issues.
