With things advancing for the betterment of the society, UnityPoint has successfully made one such attempt dedicated to the kids. This community healthcare leader has been providing some interesting hands-on skills to the kids on mental wellness and drug safety. According to this healthcare provider, these programs will allow the students to gather more information about the threats related to opioid and prescription drug misuse.
The first in line to offer these programs to their students shall be the Limestone Community High School, which is located in Central Illinois. Brittany Ott, a UnityPoint representative, mentioned that they would help educate the children in a continual manner via their series of modules available online. This will help them prevent some serious concerns that have been ailing the youth today.
Lessons related to educational science, safe prescription drugs use, as well as the development of strategies for seamless management of mental health have been reported to be a part of this program, as confirmed by Ott. The students at Limestone mentioned that they are already aware of the dangers related to drug misuse. However, this program brings in certain interactive components that help bring a sense of focus to this discussion.
