Re: Substance Misuse Awareness/Information Evenings for Parents

Dear Parent/ Guardian,

The Western Regional Drugs Task Force(WRTDF) in conjunction with the Gardai, HSE and Western Region Social Personal and Health Education (SPHE) Support Servicewill be providing an information evening for parents in the

 Correlea Court Hotel  on Monday, March 2nd @7.30.

During the evening, The Gardai will present the current situation with drugs in the region, the legal situation and what parents/guardians should look out for.

The WRDTF Education Worker will look at communicating with your children about drugs, and will give an outline of the drugs education programme that will follow later.

The HSE Drug Service will inform to parents of their services in the Tuam area

The role of SPHE in alcohol and drug education will also be covered.

Refreshments will be available.


Hope to see you there.
