medicineSURGEON GENERAL RELEASES FIRST EVER REPORT ON ALCOHOL, DRUGS, AND HEALTH

In November, the Surgeon General released a report reviewing what we know about substance misuse and how the information can be used to to address substance abuse and related consequences. To review key findings or to download the full report, CLICK HERE.


Inspiration GROWS!

inspire17CAST and UMAHS Minding Your Mind and SADD Clubs have started an “Inspiration Grows” campaign to remind our community youth to open up about their struggles and to inspire each other to avoid destructive decisions and be their best selves. Please join them in this endeavor!
1. Decorate a tree! It can be as simple as tying a ribbon around a tree, or you can get as creative as you want!
2. Snap a photo of the tree.
3. Post it on social media using #2InspirePA and #InspirationGrows.
4. Challenge others to decorate a tree! #JoinTheChallenge #You’veBeenInspired!
