By the end of this workshop, learners will:

  • Obtain an overview of meth/amphetamine: what it is and how it affects the body
  • Learn about the history, statistics and current trends in use
  • Gain an understanding of the risks and harms associated with use and ideas for responding to acute presentations
  • Learn strategies to have meaningful brief intervention and harm reduction conversations with people regarding their meth/amphetamine use
  • Learn about additional resources available

NB: This workshop is not recommended if you have completed the previously named ‘Crystal Clear’ workshop as the content is largely similar.
