VITAL SIGNS Family Forums

Are you a community coalition or a parent-facing organization? Are you interested in starting an informed, lifesaving conversation about the risk factors for youth drug use with parents in your community? Our VITAL SIGNS Family Forums offer an in-person, group format for engaging parents in our VITAL SIGNS program.

VITAL SIGNS Family Forums are NOT a talking-to for parents. They’re informed, lifesaving conversations about the risk factors for youth drug use—led BY parents, FOR parents, in SUPPORT OF parents. We fully believe that our VITAL SIGNS program for parents is made more relevant and valuable by the local leadership and families who lead and inform these discussions, share their experiences, and provide ongoing community-level support and learning for parents.

Our VITAL SIGNS facilitator guides are available to lend direction and support for encouraging discourse and shared learning among parents. For more information on hosting VITAL SIGNS Community Conversations in your area, contact
