Our youth are facing a crisis
FEND Lexington is a partnership between the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government and Preventum Initiative.
FEND Lexington is a 3-year campaign that will roll out to high school students initially, followed by middle school students and parents in 2020.
The goal of FEND Lexington is to engage and educate youth about the risks of opioids (prescription painkillers, Heroin and Fentanyl), and other commonly misused prescription drugs. FEND also provides information on mental wellness and building resiliency. As young people learn, they redeem points that can be redeemed for rewards such as FEND merch, retail vouchers, cinema tickets, concert tickets etc. As well as the individual rewards, youth involvement also counts toward their school’s tally, resulting in between-school competitions and rewards.
