Talk, They Hear You
SAMHSA’s new “Talk. They Hear You.” campaign mobile app helps parents and caregivers prepare for some of the most important conversations they may ever have with their kids. It shows them how to turn everyday situations into opportunities to talk with their children about alcohol and other drugs, and equips them with the necessary skills, confidence, and knowledge to start and continue these conversations as their kids get older.
The Starts with One campaign is designed to inform and educate young adults, their parents, and older adults about the dangers of prescription drug misuse and the importance of safe storage, use, and disposal.
As a parent, you can approach suicide prevention in the same way you do other safety or health issues for your children. By educating yourself, you can learn what puts kids at greatest risk for suicide – and what protects them most strongly.
The Safer Homes Coalition Members, led by Forefront Suicide Prevention and the Second Amendment Foundation, is comprised of firearms retailers, second amendment rights groups, health care providers, and suicide prevention experts who came together around a single goal to save lives. They provide universal rules for safe storage for medications and firearms along with training for a variety of groups.
