The Dinner Table Project

The Dinner Table Project

An evidence-informed statewide project for families of elementary age children based on research showing that children of families who share meals are less likely to try drugs and alcohol, have better academic performance, higher self-esteem, a greater sense of resilience, lower risk of teen pregnancy, lower risk of depression, lower rates of obesity, and a lower likelihood of developing an eating disorder.* The program focuses on the protective factor of sharing distraction-free meals and conversations with adult caregivers. Meals Unplugged boxes are provided to store smart phones during meals. Monthly newsletters contain conversation starters, table games, recipes, and information about protective factors for substance use and other risky behaviors. Table Talks is an extension of the Dinner Table Project that encourages families to continue having meaningful conversations with their teenagers. The quarterly Table Talks newsletter also contains conversation starters, recipes, and protective factors.

Mental Illnesses are brain-based conditions that affect thinking, emotions, and behaviors. Since we all have brains – having some kind of mental health problem during your life is really common. No matter what kind of mental health problem someone is facing, it is always possible to get better. If you think you’re experiencing a mental illness, try to find any kind of support earlier than later. Like other illness, treating mental illnesses early can help you get better faster.
