Training on Issues around Novel Psychoactive Substances & Legal Highs

leedsdrugportalThere are currently six available sessions of training available on Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS)/ Legal Highs running this financial year in Leeds.

This course utilises the most current research and knowledge available to examine the rapidly changing drug trends in the UK. In particular the training will examine how New Psychoactive Substances, sometimes referred to as 'Legal Highs' have come to prominence and why they are so difficult to legislate against.

Mentoring Scheme

 

chairsFor projects and individuals who would like the support and guidance of a mentor, we are currently developing a mentoring network.

 

The mentoring network will draw on the wealth of experience and knowledge of people in LCCTs networks to help those with the passion and enthusiasm for transformative action to reflect on the work they are doing. We also hope this network will provide opportunities for 'buddying', where individuals may benefit from one-to-one peer support from others in the network.
