Raising Healthy Teens is a public health campaign supporting teens to be drug-free. Our mission is to help teens reach their full potential by not letting drugs and alcohol get in the way.
Raising Healthy Teens supports the belief that parents are the strongest influence in a young person’s life and that positive encouragement and interactions with adults have the greatest impact on healthy youth development. The campaign empowers adults to have conversations with young people about substance use—and encourages them to continue to have these conversations as they grow up. Research shows that children whose parents have open and honest conversations with them about the risks of alcohol and drugs are much less likely to use them.
Raising Healthy Teens is an award-winning campaign that has made a positive impact in the community it serves. Through a strong digital presence, online tools, and collaboration with school and community partners, the campaign continues to share scientifically based information encouraging South Orange County’s youth to remain resilient and grow from the unique stressors of adolescence.
