TAVARES, Marcus Luciano de Oliveira et al. Information, beliefs and attitudes of schoolchildren about the use of alcohol and other drugs. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2019, vol.15, n.2, pp. 45-51. ISSN 1806-6976.

OBJECTIVE: to know the level of information, beliefs and attitudes of schoolchildren about the use of alcohol and other drugs. METHOD: a cross - sectional, descriptive and exploratory study with a 240 students sample from the municipal education network of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The Scale of Social Representations of the Consumption of Alcohol and Drugs in Adolescents was used. Data was analyzed using Student’s t-test, Mann-Whitney test and Spearman Correlation. RESULTS: alcohol and other drug use was indicated by 29.2% of the sample. It has been identified that the level of information influences non-permissive attitudes and positive beliefs. CONCLUSION:  the training of schoolchildren on the subject is an important strategy for intervention in schools, and should be carried out in an intersectoral way, involving health and education, because in this way, the stigma that associates the issue with marginalization can be reduced.
