Gain an insight into substance misuse at education event


An NHS trust that provides community, mental health and learning disability NHS services in Barnsley, Calderdale, Kirklees and Wakefield is inviting local people to a series of free talks offering an insight into substance misuse.

The education talks are being held by South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and are an opportunity for local people to find out more about the condition.

The first round of ‘insight into’ talks for 2013 will focus on substance misuse and will be led by Dr Fleur Ashby, consultant in substance misuse at the Trust.

The events are an educational talk on the condition, followed by time for questions. The events are free and are open to anybody, so local people are invited to come along with friends, colleagues or family.

The same talk will be held in each of the localities where the Trust provides services and you can come along to whichever date or venue suits you best.
