Report: Teen Vaping and Substance Use Down during COVID-19 Lockdown

Researchers from Florida International University's Center for Children and Families recently published an article in Adolescent Health.

Researchers also recommend encouraging teens to engage in healthy coping strategies like eating healthy, keeping a consistent schedule and exercising to help offset mental health problems. Learn more.
