Identifying opportunities for the prevention of harmful use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs among young Noongar (Aboriginal) people in the south-west of Western Australia

 

Overview

This is a collaborative research project between Southern Aboriginal Corporation and National Drug Research Institute. It utilises community consultation process to study the alcohol, tobacco and other drug use among Aboriginal adolescents in a town in south-west Western Australia.

This study will identify risk and resilience factors and opportunities for intervention and enable an Aboriginal community controlled organisation to develop an evidence-based strategy to address the harmful effects of alcohol and other drug use at a local level.

The study also has broad policy and practical implications and will provide a template for action more broadly to address what is a significant health problem in Aboriginal Australia.
