Are you concerned about alcohol and drug use among our youth?
IT REALLY DOES
TAKE A VILLAGE TO
RAISE A CHILD.
With the legalization of adult recreational use of cannabis and alarming increases
in overdoses and fatalities from opioids and other drugs in our communities,
we believe that now is the time for a new approach:
Planet Youth, in collaboration with the Open Doors for Lanark Children and Youth Speaker Series is presenting an introduction to the Planet Youth prevention model, which was pioneered in Iceland more than 20 years ago. Sincethen, substance use among Icelandic youth has dropped from 48% to less than 5%. The approach has
now been adopted in more than 40 countries worldwide. We are committed to bringing this approach to life right here in Lanark County. Please join us and find out how.
TOGETHER, WE CAN SHAPE A FUTURE FOR OUR COMMUNITY’S YOUTH
THAT’S RICH IN PROMISE AND POSSIBILITY.
Planet Youth Lanark County is supported by the Lanark County and the Town of Smiths Falls Municipal Drug Strategy Steering Committee, Open Doors For Lanark Children & Youth, and our Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.
