A new National Drugs Strategy is being developed by the Department of Health and will set out Government policy on tackling the drug problem from 2017 onwards. This new Strategy is important for service users, families, communities and front-line staff working in the field of addiction.
The Department of Health is running a public consultation between the 6th September and 18th October 2016, seeking the public views on the drugs issue in Ireland to help inform the new National Drugs Strategy. At the end of the public consultation, all the views received will be gathered in a report. The report will be provided to the National Drugs Strategy Steering Committee to help inform the new Strategy.
We are all invited to communicate our view in one of the following ways:
- Visit the page: www.health.gov.ie/drugs-strategy and complete the questionnaire
- Call the number: 1890 10 00 53
- Write to: national Drugs Strategy, PO Box 12778, Glenageary, Co. Dublin
- Email our views to: [email protected]
When we go through tough time, little things like talking about our problems, getting regular exercise, drinking less alcohol and being involved in activities we enjoy can make a big difference to how we feel. Find the little things that work for you at yourmentalhealth.ie
