Why You Should Attend: Whether you've reached the stage where your children are exposed to substance use or not, we're inviting you to join us for an important discussion on how to practice prevention and intervention. Evidence suggests that exposure to substance use starts well before kids reach high school.

 

"When parents talk with their children early and often about alcohol and other drugs, they can protect their children from many of the high-risk behaviors associated with using these drugs...the earlier you start talking, the better."  - Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

 

Join us to learn:

 

  • WHEN TO TALK TO YOUR KIDS

  • WHAT TO LOOK FOR

  • HOW TO PRACTICE PREVENTION

  • WHERE TO GO IF YOU NEED HELP

 

What You Can Expect: 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. We will touch on 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.
