Event description

Description


Are you worried about your teenager? Or would you like to get equipped with the knowledge to lead them safely through the teenage years? This talk with Ann Campbell from Yoda (Youth Drug and Alcohol Service) is a great place to start.

  • What’s out there for teens today? How many are using weed and cannabis, how much are they using and at what age?
  • Why we worry about teenagers using weed and cannabis. The weed that is used today is not the same as it was years ago. It is much stronger and is designed in a way that can really mess with the brain. This means that there are a lot more problems for many teenagers who use it including mental health problems, paranoia, dependence, IQ loss and drug debt.
  • What can parents do about it? This workshop gives practical advice on ways parents can keep their teens aware and safe when it comes to cannabis and weed. It is not easy, but there are things we can do.
  • If you are concerned? Ann Campbell works with YODA (Youth Drug and Alcohol Service) and will give advice on the right steps to take for parents to support their teenager if they are worried about drug use.

Many thanks to YODA and to Foroige for hosting this event.
