Making Healthy Choices

M- TEEN_DRINKINGEASTHAMPTON, Mass (WGGB) — Keeping kids away from drugs and alcohol was the message in Easthampton Thursday night.

The Healthy Youth Coalition co-hosted a town hall-style meeting with the group Students Against Destructive Decisions. Coalition member Bryan Delaney says it’s all about getting children to understand the negative impact that drugs and alcohol can have on their lives.

He adds, “Oh it’s very important coming from teens. I think the teens really solidify the different messages. We see adults speaking about these issues affecting teens, then you see how passionate teens are in our school and our community.”

That message comes at time of year when many youngsters are involved in celebrations, that often leads to under aged drinking.
