Substance misuse report

Who's making it happen


Description


Oxford has a ‘work hard, play hard culture’ which means that use of drugs and alcohol play a large role in student life. 

Study drugs are also often used to cope with the Oxford workload. 

We do not currently have concrete information on the current state of affairs, the topic largely going unspoken of, meaning students are left either in denial of the fact there is a problem or unsupported when there is, due to fear of punishment.

Substance misuse has a large impact upon student welfare and mental health. 

The report will be research and evidence based, and used to help develop the best possible harm reduction plan.
