‘On the Couch’ aims to get up close and personal with a panel of speakers who will be hosted by a facilitator around the subject area of Injecting Drug Use.

The intention is for this to be a safe space, but nonetheless, one where the audience can ask questions and engage freely.

We look forward to working with you during the workshop and sharing our collective knowledge and experience. Afternoon tea will be provided.

‘On the Couch’-Injecting Drug Use is a collaborative initiative between Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District, Healthy Cities Illawarra, Watershed, First Step Program & NSW Users & AIDS Association.

Multicultural HealthMoves registrations now open for 2015!

HealthMoves is a 12 week gentle exercise group program for CALD residents with long-term chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
