Hi all parents and carers!

My name is Linn and I work for the YMCA Right Here project (Find us on Facebook: or our website: )

We are currently running a campaign called ‘Keep Calm and Talk… Drink, Drugs and Smoke’ in partnership with Brighton and Hove City Council, which is all about helping parents and carers to find out more, talk with each other and their teenagers about smoking, drinking and drug-taking. We want to raise awareness about the harm caused by these substances and help equip parents and carers with the information and support they need to talk calmly with their teenagers and positively influence their lifestyle choices.

On our webpage you will find useful conversation starters, links to facts and support as well as films of our ‘overheard’ real life conversations.
Brighton and Hove have the highest numbers in the country when it comes to young people drinking, smoking and taking drugs, and therefore we want to reach as many parents and carers as possible.

Please check out the campaign here:

You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter for any updates on the campaign.

We would also love to hear your feedback on the website, how user friendly you find it and the content, so that we can improve! Feel free to comment any feedback here or email

Thank you! smile
