I've been asked to bring your attention to a piece of work that the EMCDDA are doing to to map and provide a typology of drug prevention services for ethnic minorities, migrants and imigrants.
If you are, or have provided a prevention intervention that might be of interest to the Centre you are asked to fill out a questionnaire - if you know of someone else then please do pass it on.
The EMCDDA explain:
the information available on prevention services for ethnic minorities/migrants/immigrants and also on the operation and content of their interventions is patchy and incomplete. As a consequence, it is hard to assess how services for these vulnerable groups respond to their needs.
Prevention services to be included in the project are those that:
- are current or did not end earlier than 2010;
- have been delivered at more than 3 sessions/events and lasted for more than 2 weeks; and
- are interpersonal interventions – that is, they do not consist ONLY of a drugs information and awareness-raising campaign or leaflet distribution.
