To help prevent youth drug use before it starts, Governor Kasich launched Start Talking! in January 2014. Ohio's statewide youth drug prevention initiative brings together proven prevention strategies to promote the importance of having drug-free conversations with our youth.
Start Talking! features three components designed to provide parents, teachers, guardians and community leaders with simple tools to get the conversation started: Know! Parent Tips, Parents360Rx toolkit, and 5 Minutes for Life.
