Webinar--Homeless Youth Speak Out About Harm Reduction

Online
February 17, 2010

1:00 p.m. (EST)

Join Lorraine Barnaby from Shout Clinic in Toronto, along with one of the project’s Peer Researchers, for a free webinar (online seminar) about their report Drugs, Homelessness & Health: Homeless Youth Speak Out About Harm Reduction, which presents the voices of high-risk, substance-using homeless street-involved youth who are engaging in some of the most risky types of drug use and practices.

Brought to you by the Wellesley Institute, this webinar will focus on the following highlights of the report:

  • Street-involved youths’ drug practices and related harms and risks
  • Emergent health and social issues and the links between the social determinants of health and homelessness
  • Barriers faced in the access to and implementation of harm reduction, addiction, health and community services and supports
  • Recommendations for the provision of accessible and appropriate services geared to this extremely marginalized and vulnerable group

Wellesley Institute webinars are free and generally last about an hour. To attend, all you need is a computer, an internet connection and a phone.
