Junior Mental Health America staff teach the Too Good for Drugs (TGFD) program in the Wabash Valley to fourth grade and fifth grade classrooms. In this program, students focus on developing personal and interpersonal skills to resist peer pressures and make healthy choices.
TGFD includes an emphasis on goal–setting, decision-making, bonding with others, having respect for self and others, managing emotions, and effective communication. The program also provides information about the negative consequences of drug use and the benefits of a nonviolent, drug-free lifestyle.
