From falling behind in school, to risky sexual behavior, to overdosing, the effects of substance abuse can hinder a young person’s ability to succeed. By talking with youth early and often about the dangers of drug and alcohol use, we can help set them firmly on a path toward a brighter future. Discover how you can make a difference this month.

Did you know that youth who are bullied can struggle with depression, anxiety, and decreased academic achievement? Or that youth who bully others often abuse alcohol and other drugs? Victims of bullying are also more likely to drop out of school, engage in risky sexual activity, and abuse their intimate partners or children as adults. This month, help put a stop to bullying.
