 Using examples from remote NT through to urban NSW, Kylie will present a range of resources her team has developed, along with research efforts, to help whole communities to reduce harms from alcohol or drug use.

Objectives

Through an exploration of various efforts to help communities to reflect on their drinking, the webinar will provide participants with the opportunity to:

1. Have access to different paper-based, film and digital tools co-created with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals and community leaders. These resources were designed to help health services and individuals address alcohol and drug misuse.

2. Consider the use of research and locally-collected alcohol or drug use behaviours data to help inform local efforts.
