Reason party leader and Upper House member for the Northern Metropolitan Region Fiona Patten talks to us about her successful initiative for an inquiry into regulation of cannabis and associated products in Victoria.
The Mindframe for Alcohol and Other Drugs project uses research evidence to reduce stigma associated with AOD use, increase help-seeking behaviour in people who may require treatment or support, and minimise harm.
The evidence-informed guidelines aim to positively influence the quality of media reporting on AOD-related issues, improve community attitudes towards people living with issues related to AOD use and increase help-seeking behaviour.
These guidelines are designed to inform, support and empower media to report safely and responsibly on AOD in ways which minimise harm, stigma and discrimination while maximising help-seeking behaviour.
