WARSAW — Parkview Health Warsaw is hosting two discussions about teens this month. The discussions, held on Aug. 24 and Aug. 19 are free and open to the public.
“The outreach for these two programs is more geared to the parent raising teens and having those positive conversations with your teen,” said Melissa Buesching, Parkview Health Warsaw’s community outreach coordinator. “Too, making sure the information you have as a parent in your wheelhouse or toolbox is from a reputable and reliable source.”
The first event is Teens and Drug Use: Get The Facts. The discussion will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 24. Detective Sergeant RJ Nethaway, Warsaw Police Department and Trooper Andrew Cochran, Meth Suppression of Indiana State Police will be speaking at the discussion.
The discussion will revolve around who, what, when, where and why kids choose to experiment with drugs.
The second event is Life With Your Teens: Do You Have The Right Tools? The discussion will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 29. Moms on a Mission will be at the discussion to share ways for parents and teens to navigate through transitions and stay healthy during challenging times.
Both events will be held at the Parkview Center for Healthy Living at 1305 Mariners Drive, Warsaw.
“There is so much disconnect between teens and parents today and from Parkview’s perspective we are hoping to help in having those sometime difficult or uncomfortable conversations with your teen,” said Buesching.
