Talking with teens about substance use can be hard. Having some facts about the developing brain can make it easier. Check out the video above for some quick tips.
“Talking with Teens” is a video series created by the Southern Berkshire Community Health Coalition in partnership with Railroad Street Youth Project, Multicultural BRIDGE, and The Center for Motivation and Change.

It also helps caring adults understand why the teen brain can lead to behaviors adults don’t understand.
