The Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines and Youth Work Group has created two new resources for parents to address the topic of alcohol and youth. The work group consists of 22 health units from across Ontario.  These resources were produced collaboratively to ensure consistent, evidence-based messaging for parents of youth and key stakeholders to guide them in delaying the initiation of alcohol use among youth. The new resources include strategies for parents and an infographic on communicating about alcohol.
