Peel in Review: 6th Annual Drug Awareness Week Forum
November 15, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Peel Harm Reduction Committee, in collaboration with the Peel Integrated Drug Strategy, is hosting our 6th Annual Drug Awareness Week forum on 15 November 2018.
This year’s theme is ‘Peel in Review: An open discussion with service providers and substance users across communities in Peel’. Different from other years where substance use was discussed in broader terms, this year’s forum will break down what substance use looks like across various communities (including women, youth, ACB, South Asian, Indigenous, 2SLGBTQ+) in Peel.
Topics of Focus:
- Substance use trends and harm reduction gaps across communities
- Services/supports available for communities
- Community-specific challenges in accessing and providing services and possible solutions.
Communities in Focus:
- African Caribbean Black
- South Asian
Safe space for substance users, 2SLGBTQ+ community and visible minorities.
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
