“The fabric of Hawai‘i is threatened by a host of interrelated social problems including mental health, drug misuse, communicable diseases, poverty, homelessness, and the over-reliance on incarceration.
To address these tough social issues, a collaboration of service providers, community organizations, and concerned citizens will convene for a one-day interactive conference to discuss ways of developing more holistic and culturally appropriate evidence-based interventions in the context of harm reduction practice.”
Check out the conference site for more details.
The Harm Reduction Coalition’s conferences are always interesting, broad-based and great learning and networking events. CAP encourages all who can attend to do so.
