"The Future Is Harm Reduction"
Harm Reduction is a philosophy and set of strategies for working with people engaged in potentially harmful behaviors. The main objective is to reduce the potential dangers and health risks associated with such behaviors, even for those who are not willing or able to completely stop. Harm reduction uses a non-judgmental, holistic and individualized approach to support incremental change & increase the health and well-being of individuals and communities.
The 2021 conference theme is “The Future is Harm Reduction.” Our sessions will explore how current societal issues can be aided by a harm reduction approach to mitigate the complexities individuals and communities contend with as they advocate for social change.
