The Harm Reduction Initiative has been set up for overseeing and implementing harm reduction programmes, raising awareness on harm related issues, preventative measures and educating our Caribbean and African Community. We have created an online platform (via Zoom) where we will be discussing issues that affect how our community accesses harm reduction services. Particularly those with enduring mental health issues, smoking related harms, drugs and alcohol misuse issues, suicidal thoughts as well as gambling issues. Each week we will look at different ways to support each other to raise awareness in our community, share tips and ideas on how we can access services and successfully complete treatment, training opportunities, one to one support for those that would prefer to remain anonymous and for confidentiality purposes as well as signposting to other harm reduction services. This initiative is not limited to people facing these issues, but loved ones as well i.e., family members.
