Webinar Description and Objectives
Inhalant abuse hasn’t really been on the mainstream radar for prevention for a while, as rates for US youth have been relatively low and relatively stable. New 2020 data from Monitoring The Future shows a potential uptick in the use of inhalants among 8th graders. Are you prepared to help your coalition learn the basics so that they can be on the lookout for this in your community? Join Dalene Beaulieu, Sr. CTC specialist, as she talks about inhalant abuse facts and prevention tips, along with a look at the new data.
By the end of the webinar, participants will:
- Be able to discuss current facts about youth inhalant use.
- Identify strategies for preventing youth inhalant use.
Prevention practitioners, allied health partners and community members working to prevent substance misuse in tribes, communities, and states in HHS Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington).
