LET’S TALK is a resource for parents and caregivers, centered around the idea that with a lot of solid science, and a lot of heart, we can support our youth as they navigate the tough stuff. Let’s Talk booklets are delivered to every 6th and 9th grade family in Marin County public schools.
Let’s Talk Community Discussions are created specifically for local parents and caregivers to provide evidence-based information, practical tools and youth input on how to best navigate the pre-teen and teen years. There are a series of 6 free Let’s Talk community discussion events for 2021-22 that are hosted on the first Wednesday of each month – October, November, December, February, March and April. Topics include: Understand your Preteen/Teen, just say Know, Parenting Tools, Mental Health and Underage Substance Use, Policy and Law Enforcement, Harm Reduction.
Based on feedback from last year’s session, parents found these discussion information, helpful and convenient. The evidence- based culturally inclusive strategies and tools provide a common language and framework aimed at improving the health and well-being of all youth. Invest 90 minutes to participate in one of the discussion and come away with new tools to support you and your family!
