There are many barriers that prevent people who use methamphetamine from seeking help, including stigma and discrimination. Cracks in the Ice is an online toolkit that provides evidence-based information and resources about methamphetamine for health professionals, families and the general Australian community. Cracks in the Ice also aims to challenge the many misconceptions about methamphetamine, as a way of reducing the stigma often associated with the drug.

Dr Steph Kershaw is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use, located at the University of Sydney. Steph is responsible for managing Cracks in the Ice; an Australian Department of Health funded project disseminating information about methamphetamine in Australia via an online toolkit and mobile app.
