Watch talks from our 2023 Parliamentary Symposium

29 Aug 2023

Run in conjunction with the Cross-Party Group for Mental Health and Addictions, our 2023 Parliamentary Symposium brought together people who use drugs, researchers, treatment providers, addictions workers, writers, thinkers and politicians to collaborate on reducing drug harm in Aotearoa.

From powerful discussions on the unmet health needs of people who use drugs to practical workshops on responding to overdoses, this day was full of stimulating conversations, powerful solutions and new ideas.

We've pulled together the best bits of the day for those who weren't there - from our acclaimed international keynote speakers to an in-depth panel discussion on psychedelics as medicine. 


Panel: Psychedelics as medicines

Keynote speaker: Kirsten Horsburgh, CEO of the Scottish Drugs Forum

Keynote speaker: Arild Knutsen, leader of the Norway Association for Humane Drug Policy
