Methamphetamine

The National Ice Action Strategy and Western Australian Meth Strategy outline the importance of drug education and early intervention programs in reducing the harms from methamphetamine and other drugs.

Drug education ensures students can access accurate information about drugs. It provides opportunity to improve their ability to make safer choices, to build resilience and to extend their social and emotional awareness.  It also strengthens their connection to school.
