HRVic provide peer education and training
by and for people with lived experience of substance use.
All HRVic Workshops and Training are tailored to your individual
or your service or organisation's Client's needs.
With the onset and continuation of COVID 19, everything has changed or is in the process of changing. As we learned long ago with prohibition, some things don't alter no matter what restrictions are put into place and as such we need to keep doing what we do. Connect, communicate, educate, empower, provide access to new injecting equipment and up to date health resources and information, motivate, activate, advocate and mediate.
Harm Reduction Victoria moves and changes with our community.
We now offer some of our training online. These sessions will be advertised prior to the time via our digital outlets- social media sites, website etc.
We are currently updating the HRVic Workshop/Training catalogue for 2022 and beyond
This workshop focuses on how to recognise the signs of opioid overdose and how to respond using naloxone- the opioid reversal medication, in all it's forms- Prenoxad®- an injectable multi dose (in one syringe) or Nyxoid®-a single dose nasal spray.
HRVic’s naloxone training differs from other naloxone training in that you are being trained by someone with lived or living experience of injecting drug use and we insist on providing participants with our HRVic naloxone kits at the end of the training session.
All current people who use drugs (PWUD) who attend will be given an HRVic Naloxone Kit (1 per peer participant)
If you are attending and belong to a service or other org who work with PWUD and would like a naloxone kit- email firstname.lastname@example.org stating this and we can give you some other options.
HRVic’s first priority is to put naloxone kits into the hands of those who need it most- people who currently inject opioids or the people who live with them. We do however understand the need for drug use to remain anonymous in the majority of cases as prohibition remains our biggest most threatening harm. If you are not a current injector but feel you need a naloxone kit- Please talk to Jane.
Currently we are using Zoom to do this online training. If you are not sure how to use Zoom or what it is, click HERE for instructions and more info. Its super easy.
