Thank You Mom
This series of nine posters was developed by Saskatchewan youth through the Saskatchewan Prevention Institute’s Youth Action for Prevention project. Each poster depicts a different young person thanking their mother for not drinking alcohol during pregnancy. Posters feature English, French, and Cree messages. Nine youth were chosen for the campaign to represent both the nine months of pregnancy and the variety of people to whom the message of preventing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is relevant. Each poster includes a QR scan code, allowing people with smartphones to link directly to the accompanying “Thank You Mom” video, found at
Binge Drinking: Facts and Consequences
Drinking to get drunk, or binge drinking, is a common occurrence among teens that use alcohol. Teens report many reasons for their preoccupation with drinking. For some, drinking is meant to relieve stress or help them fit in socially. For others it is used to celebrate and have a good time. In this program real teens share their reasons for drinking and the grave consequences that resulted from their behavior. Experts in the field of alcohol use present the hard facts teens need to know about alcohol’s toxicity and teen vulnerability. Real teens talk about: how to handle peer pressure to drink; the effect of drinking on relationships; the ineffectiveness of alcohol for stress reduction; loss of trust with parents; and the negative effect drinking has on school work. Dramatic accounts from two teens, one who was almost raped and one who almost died while drinking heavily, bring home the seriousness of binge drinking.SKU: 3-V-364
