Parents Information Sessions are normally one off events. They can be
off any duration within reason required by the host organisation. The
presentations can be formal or informal in delivery according to the
requirements of the group and can be adapted to suit various group
sizes. The sessions are normally held at a venue within the host
community and the cost is covered by TIPSA.
These sessions highlight some of the pressures placed upon young
people in our modern society. The problems and dangers for young
people abusing alcohol or other drugs are also discussed and the
actual substances themselves are also highlighted. Parents are
encouraged to talk to their children and to look for signs that
something may be wrong in a young personís life.
The events also look at ways in which Parents/Guardians can support and
help a young person who is under pressure and to make the most of
existing protective factors and to ut others in place..
This session also acts as a signpost for Parents/Guardians and young
people seeking help for a wide range of different issues, all of which
can possibly underpin alcohol and other drugs misuse/ abuse.
