We recently received the following invitation from Brian Ferrans BFerrans@peerassist.org to participate in an employer focus group next week. Contact Brian directly if you need more information:
Our program is working with the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health to provide substance abuse trainings and policy support to Colorado employers at no cost, in order to help address some of the rising instances of employee substance use/misuse. We are reaching out to Western Colorado employers in hopes to get some good participation in our Employer Focus Group on Tuesday, March 21st from 12:00-1:30pm at Home Loan State Bank in Grand Junction. The purpose of our focus group is to hear directly from employers how increasing employee substance use/misuse may be impacting their workplaces, as well as identify some strategies that may be helpful towards supporting Western Colorado employers around mitigating and/or reducing some of these issues. Our program recently collected survey data from employers all across the state and we are now focusing our effort on talking directly with employers in the Grand Junction to see how we can help address this very important issue that employers are facing.
Any one that participates will receive a $20 Visa gift card and food/beverages will also be provided.
