“Parents’ Night Out” Toolkits
A new program by SAMHSA’s “Talk. They Hear You.”® campaign, “Parents’ Night Out,” provides parents in your community with the information, skills, and tools they need to feel comfortable talking with their kids about underage drinking and other drug use. The “Parents’ Night Out” materials are intended to be used for community implementation, either virtually or in person. Comprehensive toolkits are available for download and include all materials needed to implement either a 1-hour “Parents’ Night Out” session or a series of three 1-hour program sessions. Each interactive session should be led by a facilitator, and this person can be a teacher, administrator, classroom aide, student support staff member, trained parent or caregiver, or community group volunteer.
