YOU TALK, WE LISTEN

Harm Reduction Training

Harm Reduction focuses on the prevention of harm, rather than on the prevention of substance use itself. Harm reduction is an approach that is non-judgemental with a focus on dignity, compassion, and respect. It gives individuals or groups as much information about the risks involved with drug taking so that they can make informed decisions on their own accord.

FOR YOUTH

Healthy Choices

Self-care, nutrition, stress & anxiety, substance use, mental health, sexuality. We work with schools to talk with youth, teachers and their caregivers about these topics.
