Let's talk about ujarak: Cannabis harm reduction webinar for service providers

This webinar, hosted on December 9, 2021, was co-hosted by CAMH PSSP and Pauktuutit Inuit Women of Canada. The webinar provided an overview of Let’s Talk about Ujarak: a Cannabis Harm Reduction Toolkit. This toolkit is guided by Inuit values and was created to help Inuit increase their knowledge about cannabis use and how to reduce possible harms. The resources in the toolkit include factsheets, posters, a discussion guide, an assessment tool, and more – all developed from a trauma-informed and strength-based Inuit perspective.
