Preventing alcohol and drug problems in your community

18 June 2014

Seminar held at the State Library of Victoria.

Speakers from the communities seminar 2014We can’t rely on governments or harm reduction measures any longer to reduce the number of people who die or suffer each year from entirely preventable alcohol and other drug (AOD)-related causes. Grassroots community prevention programs can have a significant impact on reducing these harms.

Prevention can be challenging, but this seminar looks at best practice approaches to prevention that communities can use to help them achieve the greatest impact from their programs and campaigns.

This seminar focused on case studies and existing programs communities can use in their own area to inspire anyone who is concerned about AOD harm to take action.
