ALCOHOL AND CANNABIS GOOD OR BAD FOR DEVELOPING BRAINS?
Is the affect on the brain more damaging for young people than adults?
“WHERE IS THAT DRUG TAKING YOU?
We now know much more about the way alcohol and other drugs affect the developing brain. Information from MRI scanning makes us think that it is much worse than was originally thought.
-What lasting effects does alcohol have on the body?
-How badly is alcohol affecting memory and ability to learn?
-Is the destroyed potential retrievable?
-Can people with past addictions lead successful lives?
-What are some practical steps to help someone who abuses alcohol?
Presented by a team from many different backgrounds including Nathan Miakere Wallis, Philip Siataga and young people themselves we hope to answer these questions and more”
When: 12th December 1.00pm-3.30pm
