Resources for Parents

Teen-Safe.org

Teen-Safe is an internet-based educational intervention for parents of high school students created in an attempt to make materials about teen substance use available to families, educators, and healthcare professionals. Our goal is to provide the latest science and true-life stories as educational materials to parents, and also to teens and pre-teens, to foster better family communications, promote resilience and healthy activities and reduce risky teen behaviors; to ultimately change young lives, preserve futures, and strengthen families.

If you have questions about Teen-Safe.org, or are interested in using Teen-Safe at your school please contact Erin Gibson.
