/ Well, Well, Well / Health / Alcohol & Drug Harm Reduction / PARTI Project: Knowing Your Drugs and Staying Safe

 

This week on Well, Well, Well,  Jessie chats to the PARTi Project about the Melbourne party scene, recent events on Chapel Street and explore some of the recreational party drugs commonly used.  

In early 2017

The PARTi Project (Peer Advocacy Response Training Initiative) is a joint project between STAR Health and VAC. It was initially formed  in response to the deaths and several hospitalisations due to drug overdose that occurred on Chapel Street in early 2017. First and foremost, it is a peer-led harm reduction initiative dedicated to reducing drug related harms and promoting people’s safety and well-being in late night venues.

The PARTi Project aims to work with late-night venues in the Stonnington and Port Phillip area in order to build their harm-reduction capacity, tailored to each venue, and create safer partying environments for our peers.

Kate, Gaia and Dan from the PARTI Project helps explore these topics, including more information and tips when partying with MDMA and GHB.
