Talk. They Hear You.
The Partnership supports the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s campaign, “Talk. They Hear You.” and their goal of helping parents and caregivers create an open dialogue with their children about the dangers of alcohol and other drugs.
Most young people report that the reason they DON’T drink or use other drugs is because they don’t want to disappoint their parents. When you set clear expectations for healthy behavior, you send a message to your child that they matter and their health matters. It may not seem like they’re listening, but they are. Parents can find New Hampshire resources, learn how to talk with their child, and access helpful information to address early alcohol and drug use through The Partnership’s parenting support resources.
