Let's talk about drugs and alcohol
Healthwatch Milton Keynes 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 social media campaign ran from 14th-18th November and focused on:
- 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
- the service that Compass provides, including information, advice and signposting.
