REBIRTH VapExit Program
As the use of electronic cigarettes, or vaping, has become more prevalent among young people, it is important to provide a social-emotional learning program on the effects of vaping. This program will focus on the negative impact vaping can have on students' physical health and social-emotional development.
As of 2021, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 middle school students in the United States reported using e-cigarettes. Vaping can have negative effects on social-emotional development. It may lead to addiction, changes in behavior, and changes in relationships with friends and family. Vaping can also lead to mood swings, irritability, anxiety, and depression. Additionally, it can affect academic performance and the ability to concentrate, which can result in social isolation and a lack of motivation to engage in sports or other physical activities.
Vaping can have a negative impact on social-emotional learning skills, including self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. It is essential to educate students about the negative impact of vaping and provide resources to help them understand the impact of their behavior on their long-term health and well-being.
