5/6 2016 Communities Talk: Town Hall Meetings to Prevent Underage Drinking
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) invites you to join in the 2016 Communities Talk: Town Hall Meetings to Prevent Underage Drinking initiative. SAMHSA has sponsored Town Hall Meetings every two years since 2006 to raise awareness about underage and high-risk drinking and to mobilize communities across the country to take evidence-based actions.
This year we are expanding prevention activities on college campuses, with a particular focus on engaging young adults, educators, and others. We know that as young adults transition—whether from high school to college or the workplace—they face increased peer pressure to use alcohol.
Help continue the downward trend in underage drinking by planning one or more Communities Talk events. A limited number of $500 stipends are available to support your event, and they are being distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please contact email@example.com with the name of your college or university, contact name, e-mail address, and phone number by Friday, May 6. Your invitation to register will be sent soon after we receive your request.
