How to stop Ice destroying the Northern Rivers

AN ICE epidemic is affecting our local communities, and it has to stop.

The North Coast Primary Health Network in partnership with Bulgarr Ngaru Medical Aboriginal Corporation, the Mid Richmond Neighbourhood Centre, Tabulam Preschool and Solid Mob are hosting a Collaborative Community Conversation: Yarning about Crystal Methamphetamine (Ice) in Evans Head and Tabulam.

The two events are open to all interested community members and will involve an information seminar regarding crystal methamphetamine, a Q and A panel with frontline workers and experts in the field and discussions around the strengths and needs of the local community in relation to substance misuse.

Information covered will include: what crystal methamphetamine is and how it affects the brain and the body; why people might use this substance; treatment and support options for people using crystal methamphetamine and how to get family and community support.

In Tabulam, the free event will start at 10am with a morning tea until 12:30 pm, concluding with a BBQ at the Jubullum Stadium, Tabulam Aboriginal Community.

The day will include activities for children, youth and adults such as traditional Indigenous games, jumping castle, basketball and footy.

In Evans Head, the free event will be held from 5:30pm until 8:30 pm at the Cherry Street Scout Hall and will kick off with a BBQ.
