NCPIC produces flipchart to highlight awareness of cannabis use

Date posted: 2 October 2012

The National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre (NCPIC), based in Sydney, recently produced a resource designed to raise awareness among Indigenous communities about the negative impact of gunja (cannabis).

The flipchart is a prevention and information resource, designed to be used by health professionals, community workers, educators, Indigenous mental health workers, alcohol and other drug workers, students and community members. Developed for use mainly with Indigenous people in urban, rural and remote settings, the flipchart uses plain language and informative images to provide information about:

A set of playing cards was also produced to complement the flipchart, and feature health promotion messages and artwork from the Kintore community (Northern Territory). The cards are a useful way of raising awareness among those who might not be engaged in a school or healthcare setting, and might otherwise not be exposed to such messages.

The resources are available to order free of charge from NCPIC, and can also be accessed from the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet website.
