Resources in the Area of Underage Drinking (UAD)

2:30 PM
3:45 PM


Part 1: “Talk. They Hear You.”: National Media Campaign

This session will showcase new resources for use by communities (e.g., PSAs, print resources), highlight local implementation in various settings, and address how to reach parents in challenging times.

Part 2: “Communities Talk” Initiative: 2021 Rollout of Town Hall Meetings to Preventing Underage Drinking

In early 2021, CSAP will launch the eighth round of Communities Talk events. The initiative educates communities about underage and high-risk drinking and mobilizes them to take evidence-based actions at the local, state, and national levels. Since 2006, more than 11,000 SAMHSA-supported meetings have been conducted every two years by communities nationwide. In 2021, Communities Talk events will remain nimble to changing circumstances, with most of our events being held virtually. Additional community priorities, such as opioids and marijuana, might be addressed as well at these events.
