There has been increasing awareness of the relationship between drugs and hearing voices in young people, but much less is said about what it might be like for a young person who uses drugs and hears voices, and even less about ways to support a young person in this situation.
Delivered by trainers with lived experience of using drugs and hearing voices, this training will:
- look at the relationship between hearing voices and drug & alcohol use in young people
- think about ways of understanding and talking to young people about drugs, alcohol and hearing voices
- think about drug & alcohol use as a 'coping strategy', or way of coping with difficult voices
- look at new ways to support young people with hearing voices and drug & alcohol use
