Talk: They Hear You

talk-they-hear-youUnderage drinking is a serious problem across the United States and in Paterson. Thankfully, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has created Talk. They hear you.—an awareness/education program that empowers parents and caregivers to talk with children early about alcohol use.

As part of the program, P-CASA developed and distributed a pamphlet that helps:

  • Increase parents’ awareness of the importance of speaking with their children about the risksof underage drinking
  • Provide parents with talking points for having conversations with their kids about underage drinking
  • Equip parents with important facts about the dangers of underage drinking
  • Offers access to additional resources that help reduce underage drinking


P-CASA understands that we can accomplish much more by working together with the wonderful people of Paterson. If you or your organization want to help build a safer and healthier Paterson for our youth, join us as we work to implement Talk. They hear you.
