CATCH My Breath Middle School-6 Session Version

CATCH My Breath is a prevention program that will help your students build knowledge and skills to resist media influences and peer pressure to try Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (aka E-Cigarettes). It was designed to be delivered by nurses, school counselors, or teachers of health education, tobacco education, physical education, drug education, or science.

Following are program materials including: training, parent resources, evaluation tools, signage, peer-facilitator guides and curriculum lessons.
