Looking for some info on New Psychoactive Substances, or other drugs?
Who'll be running the session?
Our experts will be Kellie and Michael, from the Ham Reduction Service based in Newcastle, part of Change, Grow, Live - an organisation that supports people with positive and informed life changes. Part of their remit includes substance use and misuse, and they'll be here to answer any and all questions around new psychoactive substances or other drugs.

How will the chat work?
Like all expert chats, this will be open to everyone. The moderator will ask the room who has a question and then ask you to take it in turns to put them to our experts. You'll also be more than welcome to chip in by sharing experiences and ideas that might be helpful to others.
You will be able to log in as normal on the night in the usual place: http://www.themix.org.uk/get-support/group-chat
What if I can't make it?
If you have any questions for Kellie or Michael, feel free to send them to us via private message in advance. We can make sure they get asked on the night.
