Calling Parents in Donegal – The Alcohol Forum needs you!
We’re developing a Guide for Parents and People Working with Young People and we want to hear from you!
Adults can make a big difference in protecting children and giving them a healthy attitude to alcohol. The guide will outline the risks of teenage alcohol consumption and will provide practical support around supporting young people to have healthy attitudes and behaviours.
As part of this process The Alcohol forum is organising a learning and consultation workshop on young people and alcohol which takes place on Thursday, January 18th in Dillon’s Hotel, Letterkenny from 10am to 12.30pm.
Registration will take place from 9.30 and tea and coffee will be served at this time.
All are welcome but please note that booking is essential. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
Dr Helen McMonagle, who is a psychologist by professional training and working as a specialist case coordinator in Alcohol Related Brain Injury, will present the scientific and research evidence on the risks of teenage alcohol consumption, including the link to the development of alcohol and drug dependence in later life. This will be followed by a consultation with participants around what you would like to see included in our Parents Guide.The guide will be widely available in Donegal by April 2018.
This initiative has been supported by Pobal, the Department of Health and the Healthy Ireland Fund as part of the work of the LECP
