Description:

With thousands of young people finishing school for the summer, the Public Health Agency (PHA) is encouraging parents to talk to their children about the risks associated with drinking alcohol and taking drugs. The PHAÂ's Drugs and Alcohol lead Michael Owen said: Â"Many teenagers will be spending more time with friends over the coming months, heading out to gigs and festivals, and perhaps even heading off on their first solo holiday, which could lead to excessive drinking or drug taking, so thereÂ's an important role for parents to talk to their children about the risks.
