TalkSooner serves as a resource for parents to access information about substance use prevention.
TalkSooner is the product of multiple county coalitions in West Michigan, working together to send out a common message to parents of youth ages 10-18 about alcohol, tobacco, and other substances.
TalkSooner helps parents inform youth about the dangers of substance use. Focus group data suggested that youth do seek information and guidance from parents and other adults, so it is important that parents have these difficult conversations.
Research shows youth who use marijuana at least one time per week risk short and long term consequences. Talk with your youth today about the risks associated with use. Click here to learn more.
