Taking the Edge Off: Let’s talk about drugs and alcohol
This course is great if you:
Are keen to learn more about the interaction between mental health and drugs and alcohol
Find it useful to hear other people’s experiences
Would like to learn more about treatment, management and reducing harmful impacts of drug and alcohol use
We’re going to think about the emotional, physical, cultural and societal ideas around drugs, alcohol and what it all means in relation to mental health (without the stigma and judgement that can often come with talking about these experiences).
Through sharing a variety of lived and professional experiences, we explore ways to have compassionate conversations around drugs and alcohol, whether you are facing your own challenges, or supporting or working with someone who is.
This course will open up a space to explore tools, techniques and strategies for treating, managing or overcoming addiction and dependency.
