Webinar: Alcohol and Drug Use - LGBTIQ+ Health Australia

Webinar: Alcohol and Drug Use

LGBTI people and communities use alcohol, tobacco and other drugs at elevated rates compared to the broader population, and are significantly more likely to experience drug dependence. 

As well as elevated levels of use many LGBTI people use alcohol and drugs in different contexts to the broader population.  These differences may be the reason that health promotion initiatives and campaigns targeted at the broader population do not create the same type of behaviour changes in LGBTI people, making it essential to tailor campaigns and services to the needs of LGBTI people.

This webinar was developed for Primary Health Networks (PHNs) but is suitable for all service providers and health services.
