The Guidance Network is working with COSLA to raise awareness of New Psychoactive Substances, commonly known as ‘legal highs’. COSLA has produced a briefing paper to provide information on ongoing work in relation to this and to provide information on the different types of substances available.

COSLA and Trading Standards delivered a webinar “Legal Highs or Lethal Highs” the recording of which can be accessed here.  This provides useful information for both support and academic staff on what legal highs are and the problems associated with legal highs. This webinar would also be a good curriculum resource to use in a variety of subject areas, particularly in Health and Social Care.
