“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.”

“Thank you, mother!” and “Thank you, father!” are clips from the Wise Parent campaign, run by National Insitute for Health Development and Ministry of the Interior. (Estonia, 2016).
These clips show the gratitude that a child has for his/her parents who have always been supportive and who also directs a child to achieve goals even when it´s hard (not to fall our from music school or spend endless hours behind a computer screen). Also, a child thanks that they explained them the consequences of alcohol so that now, they can do what they have always dreamt of.

Underage drinking in North Carolina starts earlier, and comes with higher costs, than we imagine. Not just dollars and cents, but lives lost, futures irrevocably altered, brains forever impaired — all of the physical, social and emotional damage that can weigh down tweens and teenagers for the rest of their lives.
