Unintentional Youth Poisonings

 Remember that 96% of unintentional poisoning deaths among 10-19 year olds are caused by drugs, including prescriptions. 

 If you think something is safe for you to take, stop and ask yourself if you know what it really is, where it really comes from, and what it will really do to you?
 Whether it’s a classmate or friend offering a pill to take to help your headache, something offered to you at a party, or even over-the-counter medication – the few seconds of pausing to consider how much you really know about what you’re about to put into your body could be the difference between your good health and significant sickness, or worse.

 We’re committed to educating audiences and spreading awareness of the dangers to adolescents of unintentional poisonings.
