Parent session on drugs

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

Parents are invited to attend an information evening at the Deniliquin RSL Club next week, which aims to tackle the issue of drugs and youth.

The Wednesday, June 19 evening session will be hosted by Deniliquin High School.

It will provide up-to-date information on current drug trends circulating in youth culture, particularly relating to alcohol and nitrous oxide (referred to as ‘nangs’) abuse.

There will be a brief information session presented by Pathways Murrumbidgee regional manager John Reid.

It will be followed by a Q&A style forum featuring Gayle Lindeman from Deniliquin Mental Health and Deniliquin Police youth liaison officer Senior Constable Paul Ebsworth.

Supported by the Deniliquin RSL Club and Deniliquin Mental Health Awareness Group, the information session will be held in the RSL Club’s Mountbatten room from 7pm on June 19.
