Mini grants available from Public Health Countryside Public Health wants to announce the availability of mini- grants up to $1000in the area of Youth Risk Behaviors - as part of the tobacco settlement The grants focus the following behaviors: alcohol and other drug use; reduction of early sexual activity and teen pregnancy; eating disorders and nutrition; and depression and other mental health issues. Community groups, schools and other interested parties are eligible to apply for funding. The grants are for new activities addressing one or more of these issues tk>r ages 12-18. Youth Risk Behaviors are activities that put youth at risk. These statistics may frighten you. The most recent Minnesota Student Survey reports that 29% of ninth grade girls considered killing themselves in the past year. 39% of senior males and 46% of the senior females reported to having had sexual intercourse three or more times. Minnesota senior males, that use alcohol, say that they have six or more drinks 36% of the time and h)cal statistics are even higher! If you are interested in learning more or want to become involved in these issues, contact your local Countryside Public Health office. We anticipate that future funding will allow for additional grants in the 2()2-2(X)3 year, pending on the state budget decisions. Congratulations Trojan Cagers You are 2nd to none!
