SAMHSA encourages parents to talk with their college-bound young adults about alcohol use. If you are a parent, a high school or college administrator, or an organization serving parents and teens, please download these free materials and share them with other caring adults.
Thank you to Dr. John Duffy who helped us host a virtual community forum held on September 24th. The author of “Parenting the New Teen in the Age of Anxiety” highlighted tips from his book and provided support for talking with teens during COVID-19 about their concerns and stress. No video is available for this session, so take a listen!
Keeping kids safe from underage use of alcohol and misuse of prescription pain medications is a concern for parents. Parents and children are encouraged to communicate with each other early on and frequently in this public service announcement from SAMHSA’s “Talk. They Hear You.”
