Connect Workshop

Your kids are going to hear about marijuana, tobacco and other drugs one way or another- it’s best if they hear about it from you. 

Sus hijos van a escuchar sobre marihuana, tabaco y otras drogas de una manera u otra, es mejor que lo escuchen de usted.

The Connect Workshop is a FREE, two-hour opportunity for parents and guardians in Deschutes County to learn factual, unbiased information and skills to start conversations with their kids about marijuana and other drugs. Each participant will receive a $15 Gift Card after completing the workshop.

Connect and learn with other parents in a non-judgemental environment.

How it works:

Learn more at:, and download for free on the app store!

(1) Read and Empathize

Teens can browse the story feed or search for specific topics to find relatable content. Real Talk stories are based on real experiences, helping to normalize sensitive topics, provide insight into how others deal with common teen issues, and build empathy for others.

(2) Share in a Supportive Environment

Teens can share their own stories to the app, providing them with a safe space to express themselves and share what they have experienced.

While we do not edit content, all stories are reviewed by trained team members before posting to the app in order to ensure Real Talk remains an authentic, supportive environment.

(3) Get Additional Help

Real Talk provides high quality, medically accurate, and teen-friendly resources for a range of needs. Whether it’s how to recognize signs of anxiety, tips for having a difficult conversation, or access to a support hotline, Real Talk has it covered.
