December newsletter: Alcohol, vaping vs dabbing, parent forum, resilience workshop
Updated: Dec 14, 2021
The December issue of our Wellness Bulletin for Norwalk Parents is here! It's full of upcoming events for Norwalk families and resources around drinking for the holidays. Please share with your networks--we want all Norwalk adults to have this info!
One of the great resources for adults mentioned in the bulletin is the "Talk. They Hear You" app from SAMHSA. Watch this short video to learn more:
Since the holiday season is traditionally a time for social events involving alcohol, this month's issue focuses on providing information and resources around drinking. Please download our newsletter below (in English or Spanish) for articles on:
Alcohol Use in Norwalk
Alcohol Safety Tips for Parents
Socially Appropriate Drinking
TNP's Liquor Sticker Awareness Campaign
LGBTQ+ Youth and Alcohol Misuse/Addiction
Dabbing & Vaping: What's the Difference?
Resource of the Month: Norwalk Youth Services Bureau
Health Department News
...along with our 3 online forums coming up in January to educate Norwalk community members (high school age through adult) about mental health, substance use, resilience, relationship building, and school climate. (RSVP here.)
Finally - be sure you're subscribed to @thenorwalkpartnership on Facebook and Instagram for our 15 day holiday countdown! Starting Friday, we will be posting a morning and an afternoon tip each day until New Year's, one on self-care and one on prevention. Be sure to reshare to your networks!
