People promoting wellbeing in a world with drugs

Our capacity to care for ourselves and one another is the best defence against addiction. War on drugs has been a war on people and it's undermined that defence. We need to build a better system. Unharm is a grassroots organisation promoting caring communities and the regulation, education and services that support us. 

Priorities

Party safe - A lot of young people’s illicit drug use takes place in party settings. Unharm promotes better alternatives to intimidating police presence at parties: safe environments, realistic and honest information about illicit drugs and how to manage the risks, and a culture of taking care of yourself and the people around you.

What we can do - We know we can't arrest our way out of addiction and other drug-related problems. It's time to talk about what we can do. Unharm develops and organises around positive solutions that enhance people's capacities to care for themselves and one another.
