How to say ‘no’

Substance abuse seminar comes to Surrey's City Centre Library Aug.14.

HOD Productions, Mannu Sandhu and Mannkind Charitable Society are holding the “I Said No” substance use awareness seminar for youth on Aug. 16 from 3-5 p.m. at the City Centre Library, 10350 University Dr.

The focus of the seminar will be about substance abuse and body image, and will involve drugs such as anabolic steroids and marijuana.

Participants – those between the ages of 16 and 24 – will be provided with “cool refusal skills” and ways to say no to drugs.

Registration is required (on-site registration begins at 2 p.m.) Participants will also be invited for a screening of the feature film Pseudo: Blood of Our Own at 6:30 p.m. at Empire Studio 12 Guildford (15051 101 Ave.)

The fictional film deals with real issues about street life, drug use and gang violence.
