Development of culturally-appropriate resources to prevent alcohol and drug-related harms among young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

In partnership with Gilimbaa, an Indigenous Creative Agency, this project involves development of culturally appropriate school-based resources to prevent drug-related harms among young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Development will be in consultation and collaboration with schools, teachers and young Indigenous Australians. An Expert Advisory Group has been established to guide the project. Scoping of existing resources and research literature will inform development of a central access portal, and a culturally-appropriate curriculum program based on the Climate Schools storyboard format. The online portal will facilitate dissemination of information and evidence-based approaches to prevent drug-related harms among young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
