The purpose is to unite and empower parents, to give them the tools to impact their children in a positive and healthy way, and to break the silence in their homes, schools and communities. Parents and teens impacted by substance abuse will be presenting their personal stories and will be facilitating meaningful discussion on how to initiate and sustain open conversation with one's child, how to identify early warning signs, and who to turn to in order to get advice and support.
