RISK – Parents

We live in a drug using society – alcohol is used to celebrate and commiserate, we turn to the use of medicines when ill, even if we have caused the illness ourselves such as headaches from lack of sleep, stress or hangovers. Caffeine in energy drinks seems to be accepted by many and new substances come along which can also be misused whether they are legal or illegal.

As a school, our aim is to educate young people to enable them to make informed decisions around the wide variety of substances in society that they may come across. As a result of our awareness raising campaign in 2013-14, linked to caffeine this resulted in a reduction in consumption of energy drinks by students; they were able to make an informed choice.

We have included links to some websites we feel may be useful for parents/carers to also be aware of relating to information, support and advice available around substances.
