Substance Use and Abuse 2019 – It’s Not the High You Think You Remember!

NY INTERSCHOOL PANEL DISCUSSION

Monday, October 21
6:30pm
Trinity School
101 West 91st Street

(Recommended for Middle and Upper School Parents - PLEASE RSVP BELOW)

Vaping, legal and illegal marijuana, binge drinking and opioids!

Kids are experimenting earlier and more often. They’re using powerful, often unregulated substances at a time when their brains and their bodies are still developing, causing serious health issues that may be irreversible and sometimes fatal. Health professionals and educators believe students are self-medicating in response to increased stress and anxiety, heightened expectations, and new forms of cultural and peer pressure. Please join our Interschool community for a panel discussion and Q and A, on how and why you need to talk to your kids about what you may not even realize they’re doing.

Moderator: Justine Fonte, Director of Health and Wellness at Dalton

Guests include:

Dr. Jonathan Avery, Director of Addiction Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College and New York-Presbyterian Hospital
Alexis Mulvihill, Assistant Head of School for Academic Affairs, Trinity School
Linda Richter, PH.D, Director of Policy Research and Analysis at Center on Addiction
