The legislature is in session! In Weber CTC’s prevention work, legislation that considers substance use prevention and prioritizes mental health is very important and can be the best prevention strategy in a community. Weber CTC will be involved by visiting with our senators and representatives in Washington D.C. and by taking our Youth Council to the Utah State Legislature for Prevention Capitol Hill Day.
We will be educating legislators on our priorities which include preventing underage use of substances like alcohol and e-cigarettes and advocating for mental health support.
We will also take some time to thank our legislatures for the recent massive progress that has been made, like creating the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.
We encourage you to use your voice this legislative session; get involved, express gratitude whenever possible, and provide your perspective to effect change where you live.
