HealthInfoNet Cafe

At this year's MHS summer forum, delegates were interested in what information was available to help in their work in alcohol and drugs and mental health. Research Officer, Avinna Trzesinski, showed delegates a variety of the resources available on the Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre web resource, including:

Many of the 200 delegates took hard copies of the Review of illicit drug use among Indigenous people and Review of harmful use of alcohol among Indigenous people to share with their work colleagues, as well as pens, note-pads, brochures and bags.
