There are key facts a Kiwi teenager with questions about alcohol or substances should know.

These videos, comicstrips and tips make it easy to have a chat with a young person, answer their questions and ensure they have the information they need.

Every young person will decide whether or not to use alcohol or substances. Many will give them a try. Some will experience short-term harm. A few will go on to develop long-term problems. These tools will help you have a level-headed conversation that will give your young person confidence knowing that if something pops up, they can speak to you.
