Alcohol and Other Drugs Youth InfoCards
In November 2017, we launched several new Youth-aimed InfoCards that are designed to give children and young people a quick reference point to know what they need to know about drugs, where to get help, and what to do for a friend in distress.
Youth-Aimed Mental Health InfoGraphics
The following links provide infographics you can use as resources to approach the listed topics, supported by our Youth Consumer Advisor:
THE DRIVE SERIES
Our Drive videos series are designed to help young people navigate their way through child and adolescent mental health service. We also have one video designed to support families who are experiencing eating disorders, how they can help their child recover. The videos were created for us by Dion Howard from Peregrino productions in conjunction with a group of young people from around the country and the Eating Disorders Association of New Zealand (EDANZ).
NZ Drug Foundation: DID YOU KNOW? SERIES
These short videos and tools provided by the NZ Drug Foundation are designed to make it easier to discuss drugs and alcohol use with young people.
