Let's talk about...drugs and alcohol
Healthwatch Milton Keynes has teamed up with Milton Keynes Council and the young people's substance abuse service, Compass, to run a drug and alcohol awareness campaign for young people. The campaign focuses on key messages: informing people of changes to legislation regarding New Psychoactive Substances (known as 'legal highs'); how to spot warning signs that young people may have a problem with drugs or alcohol; advice for parents and those who work with young people on how to have difficult conversations around the issue of drugs and alcohol; and the service that Compass provides, including information, advice and signposting.
The campaign will run on social media from 14th-18th November. Check out our Facebook page for daily messages on the above topics and links to more information.
