Development of Resources to Prevent Crystal Methamphetamine (‘Ice’) Related Harms in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Population



The aim of this project is to specifically respond to the need for improved access of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians to culturally appropriate evidence‐based information about ice. The project will build on the development of the Cracks in the Ice online toolkit that is being developed for the broader population, and will bring members of the Cracks in the Ice team together with Indigenous Australian and non-Indigenous researchers and service providers with expertise in the area.

The first phase of the project will develop an online toolkit that meets the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for; information about methamphetamine, related services and support, and will widely disseminate information about and access to the toolkit.

The second phase of the project will monitor and evaluate access to the resource and its effectiveness in responding to community needs, and will provide ongoing updating, modification and maintenance of the toolkit.
