On the NAIDOC week family fun day, Macleay Valley CDAT staffed their stall with help from Family and Community Services and local police members.
Why do people use alcohol and other drugs?
People use alcohol and other drugs (AOD) for a variety of reasons: to relax, for enjoyment, to be part of a group, sometimes to avoid physical and/or psychological pain.
Meet Ryn Vlachou.
Ryn is one of the founding members of the Blue Mountains CDAT, and has been active in the development of a vibrant network of government and non-government youth and community services working across the Blue Mountains.
Blue Mountains CDAT and Mountains Youth Services Team coordinated to support young Digital Ambassadors to spread positive messages through social media.
Now is a great time for CDATs to start thinking about their projects for 2017-2018, and to hold a planning meeting.
Aboriginal communities and NDARC team up.
Ongoing evaluations of programs such as Midnight Basketball – which we previously covered in a case study – as well as other sport and arts activities are happening in Aboriginal communities in NSW. Results could be promising for building the evidence base around successful prevention programs.
