PEAK Performance:

Substance Use Prevention and Wellness for Student Athletes
with Tina George, MSW, CPS

What makes students great athletes also places them at greater risk of substance use. Among US high school athletes, only 6% will get the chance to play in college. The pressure to perform has never been greater. This webinar will help parents understand why athletes today are at greater risk for substance use, how they use differently from their non-participating peers, and how parents can help them stay healthy and mentally prepared for their sport.
