The Family Box For Substance Abuse Prevention.
We know that families are worried about their kids and the long-term impact of social isolation on mental health, challenges with coping skills and increased risky behavior. We hope that the Family Box will help connect parents and kids and help support what for some can be challenging conversations.
Who Is This Box For - LSIS Family Box for Grades 5-12
The Family Box for Substance Abuse Prevention is aimed at families with students in grades 5-12. It is a set of carefully curated items that help start and support cross-generational family conversations around substance abuse. Feel free to lend to family and friends so that others can share in the experience, even without t-shirts or free food.
