Let’s talk about chemsex: Understanding the trends, motivations and consequences of chemsex in Scotland
From evidence in the UK, it is clear that there are specific risks and harms for people engaging in chemsex and a variety of ways that frontline workers can support people to reduce these risks. Scottish Drugs Forum and the Learning Centre at Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland have joined together to offer this course to increase knowledge and skills in supporting service users who engage in chem sex.
Aims: This course aims to empower workers with the knowledge they need to more comfortably have conversations with people who may be having ChemSex and to give workers harm reduction-focused information on how to reduce potential risks. In this course, workers will increase their ability to understand, support, provide referrals to service users involved in ChemSex.
