This video about methamphetamine is for New Zealand parents, caregivers, whānau and those working with young people to understand basic facts about methamphetamine use. Don't stop here, start a conversation.

Did you know methamphetamine use is uncommon in New Zealand, especially among young people? However, raising it in a conversation can help your young person know that it is ok to talk to you about it should they come into contact with it or know someone who might be using it. While no use is safest, explore the facts before discussing options.
