Training

The Toolbox Talk

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 each region of the Province.

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.

HELLO! HI!

Thursday 7-8pm via zoom

Hammer Time

Hammer Time is a fully anonymous, social support group (there’s no religious component, it’s not a 12 step program, and you don’t have to be sober to participate) being delivered in a partnership between the Tailgate Toolkit and the Umbrella Society.

Hammer Time happens on Zoom every Thursday from 7-8 PM and is facilitated by 2 Umbrella Society staff who have lived experience of working in the construction industry and substance use.
