We strive to be a resource to connect parents in candid discussions and educational forums to provide insight into substance use among teens.
Creating an open dialogue among parents about their parenting experiences and challenges helps to educate us all and promote communication amongst all the stakeholders in our teens lives.
Community Connections is a group of LSRHS Parents and Staff working in collaboration with the community to provide insight into the challenges and questions our teens face regarding substance use and availability in our community.
“Make the Call” is a two way street encouraging teens to contact an adult when they feel unsafe or uncomfortable with a situation they or their friends are experiencing.
Our hope is to reinforce the message “We are concerned with the safety of our teens to the parents and teens of our community.
An open dialogue among parents about their parenting experiences and challenges helps to educate us all and promote communication amongst all the stakeholders in our teen’s lives.
