Bustamante Moreno said this is a permanent preventive program that has been visiting the vast majority of primary and secondary schools in the past six years, looking for problems such as depression, hyperactivity, social learning disorders, and those who consume substances.
The problem of attention hyperactivity deficit begins as little tykes, and if untreated, tomorrow these children will leave school for drugs, and not only drugs, we are convinced the child will commit misdeeds, said the Secretary.
"This is an annual program, children grow... we visit them in the fifth and sixth grades and then in secondary schools. We already visited them when we started this program, gave them a taste of seeing some University careers or benefits of finishing high school. They were given continuity, meaning the parents took the recommendations into account ", he stressed.
