It asks them to consider what their main values are and then weigh up how a series of scenarios sit against their identified values. A great way to help young people get started in thinking about their decisions from a more clear and informed perspective!

A large portion of the calls we receive at our Cannabis Helpline come from parents who are worried their kids will use cannabis, or are worried because their kids are already using cannabis. While our Helpline counselors are amazing listeners and great with advice, sometimes it also helps to get the perspective of other parents who have been in the same or a similar situation.
