Talking Point: BreakThrough: Ice education for families

This event was one of our Talking Point series. It was delivered on 31 August 2016.

BreakThrough: Ice Education for Families, is a joint initiative between Turning Point, SHARC (Self Help Addiction Resource Centre) and The Bouverie Centre, funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services as part of the Ice Action Plan.

The objectives of this initiative are to develop and deliver a new education program for families and community members that will:

  • Provide practical strategies for family and carers to appropriately respond to a drug-using friend or relative (including ice use)
  • Increase family and community member’s knowledge of where to get further help if needed
  • Be accessible to families across Victoria, including families from Non- English speaking backgrounds and indigenous families.
