Drug and Alcohol Peer Mentoring

The Problem

Underage, uninformed and often dangerous use of alcohol and drugs. Particularly in local communities, which dont necessarily have the resources or means to implement other programs. The stigma associated with having these problems often stops people from seeking help or guidance, and this program takes the help to those who need it in a setting they are comfortable with.

The Solution

The program sends young people (school age) into both their own and other schools in Warrnambool to offer their experiences and advice in the areas of irresponsible drug and alcohol use and other teenage problems. By using people who are familiar and known to the audience it is hoped that a greater understanding and personalisation of these issues is reached. It costs little to nothing and can be easily set up on a short time frame.
