HSE Alcohol Programme

HSE Alcohol Programme

With the leaving cert results out on Wednesday morning, the HSE's Alcohol Programme has launched for parents filled with information and practical advice on how to talk to teenagers about alcohol and other drugs, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist Dr Gerry McCarney joins us to offer advice.

Dr Gerry McCarney, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, notes how important it is for parent's to know what their children are facing: "Drink and drugs are more harmful if you do not know what is going on. Getting your child's point of view is an important part of any conversation about alcohol or drugs. Listen carefully to find out what they know, what's happening with their friends and how they feel about drink and drugs."
