Chris Windle, Health Promotion Facilitator with AHS Addiction and Mental Health Courtney Barks, Adolescent Addictions Counsellor

As a parent, teacher, mentor, and active member of our community who works with young people, how do you speak to children and teens about cannabis which will soon be legalized in Canada? How do you initiate conversations, answer their questions, and help them build protective factors and resiliency? We will explore the impact of cannabis on youth, as well as offer some harm reduction tips. We will also discuss how to recognize a child that has difficulty with cannabis or other drug use, and list what services are available for those with concerns.
