Youth AOD services network

Network update

The Youth AOD Services Network will meet again on 18 March, with a view to planning training and other activities over the next 12 months.

The Youth Network is also keenly anticipating upcoming NADA supported training in suicide and self-harm prevention. This has been organised in response to recent events and requests from several NADA youth services.

The ‘Find Hope’ workshop will be led by Fiona Livingstone and is based on the internationally recognised Suicide ASIST program. It is anticipated that this event will take place in May.

About the network

The Youth AOD Services Network is a collective of community based organisations that provide specialist services to young people seeking support for alcohol and other drugs use. The group works together to enhance service provision, develop partnerships and improve referrals. They participate in a range of networking, knowledge exchange and capacity building activities and actively work with NADA to advocate for improved AOD treatment access for young people in New South Wales.

Ongoing activities

The network meets four times a year—for two meetings and two training sessions.
