Teens for Healthy Youth (THY) is an initiative of LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth.

Talk They Hear You

Since its inception, LowCountry Alliance for Healthy Youth has partnered with SAMHSA’s national substance use prevention campaign, “Talk. They Hear You.”, to promote resources that help parents and caregivers start talking with their children early about the dangers of alcohol and other drugs.

This campaign aims to reduce underage drinking and other substance use among youths under the age of 21 by providing parents and caregivers with the information and resources they need to address youth alcohol and other drug use.
