Learn How Community-Based Actions Can Prevent Youth Problematic Substance Use on Nov 24 in Carleton Place
On Thursday, November 24th, Planet Youth Lanark County and the Carleton Place Municipal Drug Strategy are co-hosting a Community Action Meeting. It will provide an opportunity for residents to learn the results of February 2022 surveys of Lanark County grade 10 students. Reports about substance use, physical and mental health, physical activity, family and school experience, internet use, etc. are available for each municipality. The goal of these reports is to provide information that helps each Lanark County community address selected risk and protective factors. The meeting will also be a chance for youth, parents, school staff, youth leaders, community organizations, municipal staff & councils to hear how strategies implemented in other communities are making a measurable difference in supporting healthier communities for children to grow up in.
Open to all, this meeting is a place to share ideas and/or use your skills to help with preventative activities in your community. Join virtually or attend in-person at 7-8:30pm at the Zion United Memorial Church at 37 Franklin St. in Carleton Place.
