Did you know? The facts are startling. Forty-eight percent of students know someone in high school that is using drugs. Two out of five students, ages 5 to 18, have mental health issues. Of those, only 25 percent receive professional services. Mental health and substance abuse go hand in hand. Kids these days are making “humid alcohol”, smoking alcohol and dry ice, doing “shake and bakes”, and drinking a “Trayvon Martin Special”. These alarming issues and current trends regarding mental health, substance abuse and drug related arrests will be shared by Paul Daniel, Center Associates, and Rod Drummer, Tama County Sheriff’s Office, on Tuesday, March 27th, at 6:30 p.m. at the Wieting Theatre. “We encourage any adult to attend this powerful and informational evening. We believe it will be worth your time and give you valuable insight into what professionals are seeing and give parents ideas of what they can watch for and do”, states Linda Rosenberger, Co-Director of Supporting Kids in Prevention. This program is sponsored by Supporting Kids in Prevention and Tama County Public Health & Home Care. The cost of the program is free. There will be a light meal served at 6 p.m. with the program starting at 6:30. Child care is available at Kids Corner, but parents MUST pre-register with Tama County Public Health & Home Care by March 23rd to be able to access this. For more information about this informative program, contact Tama County Public Health & Home Care at 641-484-4788.
