State/ Regional: Workshop/Conference: "Talk. They Hear You." Military Family Underage Drinking Prevention Training

Aug 14 - Aug 14 2018
Ridgeland, Mississippi
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) Service Members, Veterans, and their Families (SMVF) Technical Assistance Center in partnership with the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention has invited our community to participate in a 1-day event focused on helping military families reduce underage drinking. This event will take place on August 14, 2018, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, at the Mississippi Public Health Institute at 829 Wilson Drive, Suite C, Ridgeland, MS 39157. Several teams across the country will be simultaneously taking part in virtual sessions throughout the day. During the meeting, you will be given the opportunity to collaborate with key stakeholders in our community who serve military families, to view a newly-developed SAMHSA toolkit targeted specifically toward underage drinking in military families, and to develop recommendations for incorporating and disseminating these tools in our community. Lunch will be provided.

This is an exciting opportunity for us to have an impact on underage drinking in our community, and I hope you or your delegate will be able to attend.

Jacksonville, Florida
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) Service Members, Veterans, and their Families (SMVF) Technical Assistance Center in partnership with the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention has invited our community to participate in a 1-day event (9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) focused on helping military families reduce underage drinking. This event will take place on August 14, 2018 at City of Jacksonville, City Hall-Lynwood Roberts Room, 117 W Duval Street, Jacksonville, FL 32202. Several teams across the country will be simultaneously taking part in virtual sessions throughout the day. During the meeting, you will be given the opportunity to collaborate with key stakeholders in our community who serve military families, view a newly-developed SAMHSA toolkit targeted specifically toward underage drinking in military families, and develop recommendations for incorporating and disseminating these tools in our community.

Alcohol is the most widely misused substance among America’s youth and underage drinking remains a considerable public health challenge. SAMHSA’s underage drinking prevention campaign, “Talk. They Hear You.” helps parents and caregivers start talking to their children early about the dangers of alcohol.

This event will provide a general overview of the “Talk. They Hear You.” campaign for military families as well as the opportunity to identify our community’s strengths and any gaps that can be addressed. After reviewing the SAMHSA toolkit, which include a public service announcement, a mobile application, and customizable resource materials, we will have the chance to ask those who developed the materials any questions we may have to ensure the most comprehensive delivery to our community.

This is an exciting opportunity for our community to make an impact on the prevention of underage drinking, and I hope you will be able to attend. I look forward to seeing you there.
