Harm Reduction & Recovery Ally Training
The Student Recovery Community has successfully developed a peer support network and recovery programming, filling a significant gap in on-campus mental health support. In an effort to expand awareness and campus-wide support for students in or seeking recovery, the SRC is developing online Harm Reduction & Recovery Ally Training. The SRC is focusing on allyship because it has been consistently named one of the most effective tools in enhancing a sense of well-being, safety, and inclusion for students in recovery. The Harm Reduction & Recovery Ally Training will be made widely available to UBC students, faculty, and staff, and will provide an empowering overview of substance use disorders, process addiction, harm reduction, and recovery, further enabling those who attend to incorporate harm reduction and recovery allyship into their daily lives and interactions.
