What does harm reduction mean to you? (Do you have any experience with HR- personal or for others?)

For the past several years LCIH has been working toward adopting a harm reduction framework throughout the organization - within the shelter itself, as well as through outreach services.

LCIH staff have participated in harm reduction training, visited several shelters who are currently using harm reduction framework, and have formed a harm reduction committee which includes community members who have harm reduction experience. one of the important pieces is to get feedback on this new approach to facilitate discussions and to deal with any fear or misconceptions.

LCIH particularly would like feedback from current and former service users(outreach clients as well as those who have lived or are currently living in the shelter) LCIH is also interested in hearing from other community members and service providers who work with the women we serve.

This survey is a general survey as LCIH moves to a harm reduction framework and has nothing to do with individual attitudes, behaviors or herstory

Harm Reduction (HR) is a range of policies and practices designed to reduce the harmful consequences sometime associated with various human behaviors. (seat belts, condoms, and un-used needles are examples)
