The STRIVE service is a partnership between The Corner and Hillcrest Futures providing targeted support to young people and their families affected by substance use in Dundee. STRIVE works with young people aged between 12-21 providing holistic health checks, 1-1 substance use and emotional support. The service has a focus on early intervention, harm reduction and homelessness prevention.

This event ties into this years theme of ‘Together We Can’ where the team will host an information morning aiming to upskill professionals to better support a young person who may be affected by substance use.

The morning will include STRIVE service information, tips on initiating and handling conversations around substance use, Dundee’s latest Drug trends for young people and networking opportunities to identify support.

Overdose affects everyone. From grieving families to spontaneous first responders, the impacts of overdose are far-reaching and fall indiscriminately.

Sign up to the International Overdose Awareness Day newsletter and become part of the global movement to end overdose.
