They provide harm reduction tips and tools, with specific advice for harm reduction when taking party drugs, and on student wellbeing.
Bristol SU, University of Bristol and The Drop, part of Bristol Drugs Project, have come together to promote harm reduction activities around drug use, including alcohol.
A core aim of the project is to ensure there are no barriers to students accessing support and to reduce the risk of harm associated with using drugs, including alcohol.
The SU launched a regular drop-in with The Drop in the Richmond Building where students will be able to receive harm reduction advice, support and information alongside the opportunity to pick up a free drug reagent testing kit funded by the University of Bristol.
This session is intended for anyone who is currently using or thinking about using drugs, including alcohol; anyone who is concerned about a friend’s use of drugs or anyone who just wants to know more.
The session covers: the identification and categorisation of many common drugs; potential risks associated with drugs, including alcohol; the effects of mixing drugs; explores why people use drugs and the different types of use, from recreational to addiction.
