This workshop is designed for anybody who has a young person in their life, either personally or professionally. There is a great deal of confusion surrounding Cannabis products and the risks for young people including the impact on their mental health.
So please join us to learn about the new trends including high THC levels, concentrates and edibles, so you can begin a conversation about this with the young person in your life.
