Our guest today is from Drug Free Australia and is here to share a new resource they have created that puts prevention first! It is a new suite of health education modules with a focus on drug use prevention to be used by teachers, parents, school counselors, life coaches, and youth workers.
‘Save Your Brain’ (SYB) is targeted for younger adolescents (in middle school years) to promote an understanding of how the brain develops throughout the early years and into adolescence. In particular, it focuses on the impact of alcohol and other drugs on the brain. It also looks at protective factors to give teens the 'tools' to be able to negotiate anti-social requests in peer pressure situations.
