Dr Jeremy Hayllar

- Portugal and beyond – alternatives to the War on Drugs

by Insight

In his 28th seminar (!) Dr Hayllar will reflect upon his recent trip as part of a Queensland Mental Health Commission delegation to Lisbon in June - 18 years after illicit drug possession for personal use in that country was decriminalised. The approach taken by Portugal (and other countries) will be discussed alongside reflections on what could work in the Queensland context.

Presented by Dr Jeremy Hayllar, Clinical Director, Metro North Mental Health - Alcohol and Drug Service, Qld Health
