One of the Prevention WINS coalition's strategies to prevent youth substance abuse in NE Seattle is outreach and education among parents. The coalition's campaign to help parents support healthy decision-making among their children includes postcards containing parenting tips. These tips echo what parents learn through tested and effective prevention programs like Guiding Good Choices and Strengthening Families, which is offered to Eckstein Middle School families twice a year.
The first round of postcards are in the mail and will go to all families of students attending Eckstein Middle School, Nathan Hale High School and Roosevelt High School.
The coalition's Social Marketing Workgroup, which is developing the campaign, will meet again on Tuesday, December 6 at 6:30 p.m. Contact the Prevention WINS coordinator for more information.
