FASD and Mental Health

The inaugural October 2022 ProofCON Pro session will explore the many intersections of FASD and mental health.

Several studies have shown an increased risk for cognitive disorders (e.g., problems with memory), mental illness or psychological problems among people with FASD. Learn more about how these two topics intersect here. 

The Next Generation of ProofCON

After a decade of annual in-person gatherings, the new virtual ProofCON Pro conference series makes it easier than ever to learn about fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) and its many intersections with today’s hottest topics.  This series is replacing our annual in-person conference.  

We look forward to offering you the same engaging programming you’ve come to expect from us. This refreshed approach aims to cast a wider net – raising greater awareness about FASD and prenatal alcohol exposure by demonstrating how these relate to other current and critical issues. 

Pro Ed That Works for You!

The quarterly virtual sessions will include accessible educational content and the opportunity to hear fact- and experience-based information and insights from speakers all over the world. Registrants will have on-demand access to content. Watch when it works for you! Professionals can also earn CEU credits by attending ProofCON Pro sessions.

We look forward to welcoming you to the reimagined ProofCON Pro on October 27th and 28th, 2022. If you have any questions, please reach out to Emma Baldwin at emma.baldwin@proofalliance.org.
