As a parent, you spend a good part of your day working, paying bills, making appointments, and coordinating extracurriculars. When that’s all done, there’s hardly enough time and energy to have a family meal together. But a family dinner is one of the few times that you and your kids get to talk about the day and discuss plans for the future. It’s also in these quieter moments that you get an opportunity to talk about serious things like preventing substance abuse and managing mental health challenges.
May 14-20 is National Prevention Week, a time to equip your family with the information you need to prevent, recognize, and find help for substance abuse and mental health issues. These resources compiled by USAGov can help you and the people you love get educated, and find help.
