Toolbox Talk

Start the conversation about substance use at your worksite! Book a FREE 30-45 minute toolbox talk that will introduce your crew to the realities of substance use, mental health, chronic pain, and the current toxic drug supply as it pertains to our industry.


The Toolbox Talk is an introductory conversation about substance use, mental health, the current toxic drug supply, and what harm reduction/recovery services are available in your region of British Columbia.

  • The Toolbox Talk is 30-45 minutes long
  • It can be delivered with a slideshow, or solely discussion-based, either in person at your site or via Zoom.
  • There is no cost to participate in the Toolbox Talk, and we’d be happy to travel to your site or office.

*Please Note: program fees are currently waived, with costs funded in partnership with the BC Ministry of Mental Health & Addictions, Canadian Mental Health Association (BC Division), and the Community Action Initiative

  • The current toxic drug poisoning epidemic
