The abuse of inhalants among young adolescents is a rising public health concern not sufficiently addressed in Thailand. The lack of education in schools regarding mental and physical effects of inhalants has contributed to this health concern. We worked with the SATI foundation and the Hub in order to recommend a way of raising awareness of inhalant use and its detrimental effects. To accomplish this, we conducted interviews of teachers, surveyed the level of inhalant knowledge in adolescents, and closely examined engaging techniques of drug prevention programs locally and globally. This work culminated in a website deliverable that contains several forms of media targeted towards Thai adolescents, is easily shared, and has the underlying message of volatile substance awareness.
