It’s that time of the year for WestCare Arizona’s prevention specialists! The school year began on August 4th and we are excited to be back to school! WestCare’s team of dedicated prevention specialists works with schools in and around the area providing students with life skills and education on topics that include substance abuse, anger management, self-esteem, bullying, tobacco, and social media awareness. Every year, our city continues to grow, which means that our classes continue to grow. This gives us an opportunity to work with more students to develop positive life skills. Students are encouraged to participate and share thoughts and ideas while in a comfortable and safe atmosphere.
