Vaping: ‘I didn’t know that’ – Part B

LEAD PDA, NSW Western Sydney Health, and Hawkesbury Council invite you to join us for an upcoming interactive workshop on vaping and its effects on young people. 

This 2-hour workshop targets young people and their case workers/youth services support to create a safe space for them to engage in conversations around vaping  – similar to the first session is around longer term health effects (more from taking up vaping on its own and not as a smoking cessation device), laws, what help is there, and ability to ask questions they don’t feel comfortable speaking with peers about.

This session will cover:

  • What is vaping or e-cigarette and how does it work?
  • Do you know what you’re vaping?
  • Health effects of vaping or e-cigarettes
  • Addictive nature of nicotine in e-cigarettes
  • Signs to know you’re addicted to vaping or e-cigarettes
  • Why is vaping appealing to young people?
  • Common myths about vaping or e-cigarette
  • How do I say NO to a vape or e-cigarette?
  • Is it legal to sell vapes or e-cigarettes to under 18 years old (reporting?
  • How to seek support

Acknowledgement

LEAD acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land we gather and work on, and the land that you are on while visiting our website. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation for Australia’s cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation. This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity. Understanding and respect are guiding principles of LEAD’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
