RxSafe Marin is a broad-based community coalition dedicated to reducing harm from prescription drug abuse and saving lives.


On June 1st, MHYP is hosting a virtual film screening of  The First Day: A Focus on the Beginning  followed by a Live panel discussion. The First Day is an innovative approach to prevention and wellness education with a look into the struggles facing youth today. Through the power of storytelling, the film addresses issues that teens and communities are impacted by from substance use to mental wellness.

Chris Herren scored over 2,000pts in high school, played college basketball and was drafted by the Denver Nuggets. He played two years in the NBA and seven seasons overseas before losing it all to the disease of addiction. The First Day chronicles this journey.

Parents & youth are encouraged to attend. The First Day is intended to start the conversation, to raise awareness of the critical issues and challenges to address substance use with a focus on wellness, and rethink the disease of addiction.
