10. Action Plan Technique Set-up a code word for your child to text to you. When you receive the code-word call your child and demand that they come home and/or you are coming to pick them up. This gives your child an easy way to save face and get out of an uncomfortable situation.

12. How it is used Rolled and smoked Smoked in a pipe or bong Vaporizer Eaten (cookies and brownies) Brewed in Tea

13. Laced Marijuana Crystal Meth is most commonly used due to it being cheap, easily produced and highly addictive Cocaine (cocoa puffs) HOW TO TELL if marijuana is laced: Shimmer/shine Crackles when it is smoked If it feels weird… stop smoking it and spread the word

21. Mental Health Family history of mental health concerns greatly increases the chances of youth developing them as well Toss drug/alcohol use into the equation and the likelihood is significantly increased Discuss family history of mental health with your youth. Equip them with info so they can be aware of changes if they occur

22. Prevention Focus on goals & passions: sports, art, music Learning how to cope with stress Learning how to create balance in life (school, home, friends) Open communication including talking to your kids at an early age Support system: youth worker, counsellor, peer counsellor, good relationship with family members Family time (i.e family dinner) Education

23. What you can do Best prevention is education Contact school counsellor or youth worker Don’t shame, threaten, or isolate as a way to gain control Talk, don’t lecture – remember everything you say is a seed planted LISTEN ? Tell your child what you hear them saying. Restate your concern. Keep yourself & your child informed
