"I would love to see 'harm reduction'
open to include the basic
mentoring, sharing/teaching of social emotional skills, that makes for a
resilient, strong healthy person. Optimal health people, optimal health!"
Kerri Kightley DTW Partner/Advisor
Peterborough Drug Strategy
'Doing The Work' - Much more than harm reduction:
Outreach, support, counselling, helping and sharing circles ...
Harm reduction, service provision, intervention, education and prevention ...
Homelessness & housing, employment, justice ...
Trauma and addictions ...
Mental, physical and spiritual health ...
'RURAL & Remote'
For those working in small cities, towns, rural, remote and isolated areas.
More than a conference ...'GATHERING'
Much like a conference there will be presentations, workshops and forums, but based on some advice from our advisor (now retired) Little Brown Bear of Midland, ON, this will be a gathering of caring, active folks and be the beginning of an ongoing conversation. There will be much conversing, sharing and connecting. And we will keep the conversation going after this gathering in ways chosen by you, the participants.
Presented by CAST Canada - Tom Regehr and Becca Partington. Contact below.
