Helping someone with problem cannabis use: mental health first aid guidelines (2009)

Institution

National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre

 

Description

These guidelines do not teach people to be counsellors or provide treatment for cannabis use problems. Rather, they inform members of the community how to recognise when someone's cannabis use has become a problem, how to provide initial support and information, and how to guide the person to seek appropriate professional help.
The guidelines also advise someone how to encourage a person with problem cannabis use to seek other help options, such as informal support groups.
Finally, they provide information on what to do if the person does not want help with their problems.
