    PUBLIC HEALTH SURVEILLANCE AND ALCOHOL-RELATED INJURIES  Considered a crisis situation in the United States, excessive drinking and binge drinking are problems that require serious attention. The detrimental effect it has on public safety is more than worthy of all the effort necessary to not only reduce it but eradicate it. More significant are the innocent lives that are impacted. This devastating impact ranges from financial cost, physical injuries and rehabilitation, and many times, fatalities.

    As your little one enters kindergarten for the first time, or your tween heads off to middle school, or your teen starts high school (AH!), take a good, long look at how much they've grown under the summer sun. All those nerves you're feeling about your kid entering the unknown? All parents have had those feelings before - and we've gathered their tales to help guide your conversations about alcohol. 

    Transitions can be complicated for many young people. This big, new world they're facing head-on this fall can be overwhelming, so we're encouraging you to stop and take a deep breath. Whether they show it or not, your kids are looking to you for guidance and a sense of comfort as they tackle the new school year. It's sometimes hard to find the time to listen, be there to comfort, and help problem solve. Let's talk about how we can help. 

    Even with so much going on, we want to encourage you to continue having conversations with your kids about alcohol. Our easy-to-use, free resources provide parents with helpful tips in guiding conversations about risky behaviors, including underage drinking.

    Check out just a few of our resources for teachers and parents below. Blogs, testimonials and other assets to help you have this powerful, substantive and important conversation with your kids this fall are just a click away
