The Mental Health & Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize, and Hardin Counties has introduced a new youth prevention program.
I Mind is a voluntary one-day weekend program that gives adolescents tools to avoid substance use.
It also helps students return to school or after-school programs as quickly as possible after discipline measures.
When school Alcohol and Other Drug policies are violated, students are often excluded from school other activities for discipline.
Youth need prevention programming to turn from potential substance use disorders.
The program is funded by the Mental Health & Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize, and Hardin Counties.
