As we all deal with implications of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to remember the additional stress it places on our youth. We have compiled and are sharing a list of resources for families, counselors, educators, and other community members, to help address the additional pressures, stresses, and changes our youth are encountering during this challenging time.
Research shows that youth turn to substances for a number of reasons — stress, loneliness, and periods of transitions are some of the leading causes that can trigger unhealthy choices. We know you are concerned about keeping children safe and healthy, we will continue to add to these tools and resources, so please check back often.
