Indigenous risk impact screen (IRIS) and brief intervention training 2014

 

Overview

This training, provided by the Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Network of New South Wales, is available in Broken Hill, Orange and Wagga Wagga.

The Indigenous risk impact screen (IRIS) is a screening tool that assesses clients on two factors, their alcohol and other drug usage and any mental health issues. The screen provides prompt information regarding the client's social and emotional health as well as possible treatment, referral and intervention or assessment pathways.

IRIS has been developed to assist in addressing recommendations in both state and national reports in 2006 which identified the need for such a tool. The program has since been rolled out nationally.

Please refer to the below information for dates and location.
