The City Council of Jumilla, through the Association of Rehabilitated Alcoholics of Jumilla (ARJU) and with the collaboration of the Ministry of Health, has initiated for the second year a campaign of prevention in pathologies aimed at young people between 14 and 16 years.
It is being carried out with students from 3rd ESO, 1st and 2nd Basic Vocational Training and the Integrated Center for Training and Agricultural Experiences, which means 17 classrooms.
It has been presented by the Councilor for Social Policy, José Luis Monreal, the coordinator of the Center for Social Services, Vicente Martínez, as well as Cati Moreno and Jara Cuadrado, on behalf of ARJU.
With the young people two workshops are held.
The first session is informative, where the problem of gambling is explained in detail, entering the risk factors, protection factors and the first alarm signals to detect this addiction.
In the second session of prevention of gambling, students will work with both social and emotional skills, which are essential for the optimal development of the person.
In addition, different strategies and alternatives to the game will be provided to young people, along with healthy leisure and fun habits.
During the last week of prevention, a talk will be given to parents of students.
The campaign has started this October and will last until the end of 2019.
