I work for an organisation who support young people in their transition through “adulthood”.
Recently, a young person, age 13, who was attending our program for the second time only was caught with a couple small bags of marijuana. Because of Department of Education policies I had to report the matter to the Police. I knew little to nothing about this kid’s well-being, mental health and family relationships. He is not coming back to our program because of this.
I really hope the intervention from the police will cause more good then harm..
