A Guide to Drug Abuse Education and Information Materials, 1972.
National Inst. of Mental Health (DHEW), Rockville, MD.
This guide was developed from efforts initiated by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to inform and educate the public about drug abuse beginning in April, 1969. At that time, NIMH produced television spots, radio announcements, newspaper and magazine ads, films, and general awareness publications. This guide was developed to make available educational guides and tools so that there can be better understanding and communication about drugs--the pressures, cultures, questions, and values--with students, young people, or patients. The guide includes films, audiotapes, a simulation program, and printed materials. They show the latest educational techniques of drug abuse prevention; how one becomes aware of his own and others' emotional reactions to drug abuse; various proven approaches used in drug abuse prevention and educational activities throughout communities in the U.S.; and beginning approaches to alternatives to drug misuse. This guide is a complete listing of all such materials available from NIMH. (LK)
