Press release

“New first aid guidelines for problem cannabis use have been released today to help the community identify and assist users who are developing a problem with their cannabis use or are in a cannabis-related crisis.

The guidelines, the first to be produced in the world, have been researched and produced by Orygen Youth Health for the National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre (NCPIC), funded by the Australian Government, based at the University of NSW, and are a response to the growing body of evidence that links cannabis use to a range of physical and mental health problems.

They are designed to inform members of the community how to recognize when someone’s cannabis use has become a problem, how to provide initial support and information, and how to guide the user to seek professional help.”
