The Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging held a roundtable discussion as part of Governor John Kasich and First Lady Karen Kasich's Start Talking initiative.

Area Agency on Aging Marketing Coordinator Amy Rose says the Start Talking initiative is being implemented as a way to help address the drug epidemic that's facing our young people.

Rose says local agencies like Community Action for Capable Youth, Madcap and the Ontario Schools Substance Abuse Prevention Program, were brought in to help facilitate the discussion. Rose says parents, grandparents, mentors and peers, can make a difference just by talking to the young people in their lives about drug abuse.
