Promoting conversations with children about the importance of living healthy lives has lasting impact and is a critical part of addressing our children’s mental health. Simply having regular conversations with your students is an effective tool to prevent drug use and show your support. It is also important to know the signs and symptoms of mental health concerns in your students and where to get help when needed.

Anyone in need of support can contact the Ohio CareLine at 1-800-720-9616 or by texting "4hope" to 741 741.  

HOPE Curriculum

The HOPE curriculum is a series of lessons, assessments and learning materials to develop students’ functional knowledge, attitudes and necessary skills to prevent drug abuse. The lessons are designed to be part of a larger substance abuse prevention unit within a school’s health education curriculum.
