What's the Harm? (A Substance Abuse Prevention Panel)
Please note, this event has expired.
Whether you have reached the stage where your children are exposed to substance use or not, join Raising Resilience and local experts for a discussion on how to practice prevention and intervention, and help your teen or tween thrive.
Evidence suggests that exposure to substance use starts well before kids reach high school. Find out when to talk to your kids; what to look for; how to practice prevention and where to go when you need help.
Representatives from Bainbridge Island School District and Bainbridge Island Police Department will join local healthcare professionals to address what they are seeing in our community. Learn about the brain science and health risks of adolescent substance use and discuss what you can do at home to help your kids thrive. A role-play demonstration will prepare you for discussions with your tween or teen.
Recommended for parents, grandparents, caregivers and educators. Registration is required for this free event.
Presented by Raising Resilience, in partnership with Bainbridge Youth Services and Bainbridge Island School District, with additional support from Front Street Clinic and One Call for All donors.
