MAC students learn about Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided with Naloxone)

Graduate counseling students taking the Clinical Mental Health & Agency Counseling course had an excellent opportunity to learn about Project DAWN --  Deaths Avoided with Naloxone -- last week. Mr. Harold Huffman, Emergency Planning & Injury Prevention Manage at Seneca County General Health District, provided the lesson.

This course addresses such issues as the role of the counselor in providing clinical mental health counseling and community counseling, prevention, outreach, systemic issues, emergency preparedness, professional and client advocacy and social change and service delivery programs. The MAC students, pursuing licensed professional counselor licenure and the NARCAN training, taught how to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose and understand how the opioid overdose reversal drug Naloxone works.

"Project DAWN provided me with insight, knowledge, and education about overdoses, how to respond to an overdose, community resources on where I can receive free Nalxone, and training," said MAC student Jade Reynolds.

Project DAWN is a network of opioid overdose education and naloxone distribution programs (OENDP) coordinated by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH n.d.) and can access detailed information here.

Students pictured are Brandon Eckstein, Harrison Herreman, Jamie Long, Noel Ufferman and Jade Reynolds.
