(Missouri) Prevention of Underage Drinking in Missouri – Missouri has undertaken a number of strategies to combat negative trends in underage drinking. This video highlights some of those initiatives and encourages viewers to get involved in local prevention efforts. Thisvideo was produced through the SAMHSA/CSAP Underage Drinking Prevention Education Initiatives (UADPEI) in an ongoing collaboration with States and Territories to produce videos that support local underage drinking prevention communications efforts. Across the Nation, every State and Territory is unique and so are their approaches to preventing and reducing underage drinking. The video project supports the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Strategic Initiative #1: Prevention of Substance Abuse and Mental Illness, which states, “… prevention of underage drinking [is] a priority for States, Territories, Tribal entities, universities and communities.” For more information or resources, visit: www.stopalcoholabuse.gov starttalkingnow.org store.samhsa.gov
