Harm Reduction as Community Safety

December 1, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

This workshop is intended for community members of the Niagara Region who are interested in supporting those who use substances. It addresses the criminalization of substance use and the effects. Looking at the social determinants of health, the facilitators will highlight the areas where community members can support those who use substances, discussing topics like safe supply, housing, income, and mental health services, while also looking at compounding barriers such as racism and the lack of culturally competent healthcare services. Utilizing the slogan ‘Support not Stigma’ the facilitators show how acceptance of harm reduction can result in healthier residents and safer communities.

The workshop is approximately 1.5 hours in length.
