Youth to Youth provides innovative approaches for students of all ages that focus on preventing the abuse of prescription drugs. You can bring these interactive youth-delivered presentations into your school or organization. Contact Cheryl Sells firstname.lastname@example.org.
The “pHARMing Effects” presentation looks at the abuse of prescription drugs, its’ connection to heroin abuse, and how it is affecting youth today. The goals of this youth-created and youth-delivered presentation are to expand awareness about prescription drug misuse and abuse, teach strategies to prevent prescription drug misuse and abuse, and to have fun while learning about the dangerous harming effects of prescription drug abuse.
After this interactive 50 minute presentation students can also identify strategies that can be used to prevent prescription drug abuse in their home, schools, and communities.
Thanks to materials and funding provided by the Cardinal Health Foundation, Youth to Youth offers a free, interactive & informative presentation for elementary students regarding medication safety. Through age-appropriate activities delivered by trained middle school mentors and a Prevention Specialist, students in grades 2-5 will become deputized in the Medication Safety Patrol! Students will learn medication safety practices that are a vital part of the prevention continuum of prescription drug abuse and misuse education.
