Lindsay Calveri, Parent Leader, and Gwen Doland, Substance Use Disorder Clinical Manager will center their discussion around addressing perinatal substance use disorder as a public health issue while challenging the historical system response that has often been stigmatizing, shaming, and punitive. As a parent leader, with lived experience navigating the child welfare system, Lindsay will provide insights into the barriers, successes, and opportunities to support healing and recovery for parents and their young children. Through the conversation, shifts in practice and policy that can reduce stigma and support engagement in services for pregnant individuals and their families will be highlighted.
