LAPS NEWS RELEASE
“Screenagers Under the Influence” will be shown Thursday evening at 6:30 pm at SALA as part of the Mental Health Matters series. All events are free to the public.
This is a new release that examines the impact of our digital age on teens’ decision making in relation to substances such as vaping, alcohol, drugs, and gaming. The film explores the latest research, highlights the personal experiences of teens and families, acknowledges the changing landscape of the substances themselves, and offers solutions for how we can best empower teens as they face decisions about what they will and will not be influenced by.
A discussion of the information and ideas will follow the film.
Screenagers Under the Influence is recommended for youth in 6th grade and above. The first 25 students who bring an adult will receive a free popcorn and drink.
