A Conversation Worth Having

The Campus & Community Coalition has joined together with its partners, Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools, the Town of Chapel Hill, and the Orange County Health Department to highlight a conversation worth having. Our team has pulled together the leading research on alcohol's impacts on the underage brain to bring resources to families in our community so that they can start a conversation about adolescent substance use. We cover why families should be talking with their children about alcohol, how they can start the conversation, and how mental health and social media influence underage alcohol use. Our hope is that the community will build on the strength of its connections to start conversations within and among families.
