CHAT wins injury prevention award!

SDERA’s Changing Health Acting Together (CHAT) initiative has been awarded for Outstanding Achievement in Injury Prevention, Early Intervention, Treatment and/or Recovery.

CHAT builds resilience in students, parents, staff and the wider community by integrating road safety and alcohol and other drugs education into classroom learning and school practices.

The announcement was formally made today at the 2017 Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion Awards in Perth.

SDERA’s Acting Manager, Anne Miller, was proud to accept the award on behalf of the organisation.

“Arming children and young people with education about road safety and alcohol and other drugs helps them to make safer choices,” she said.

“SDERA is honoured to accept this award and we feel proud knowing CHAT is reducing injury and making positive impacts across the whole community.”

CHAT is currently implemented by 122 metropolitan and regional schools across WA.
