Yarning it Up – Don’t Smoke it Up

The Yarning it Up – Don’t Smoke it Up Aboriginal tobacco program, provided by the East Metropolitan Community and Population Health Service, aims to reduce tobacco related harm in the adult Aboriginal population of the Perth Metropolitan area.

We provide culturally appropriate tobacco education information sessions designed to increase the Aboriginal community’s knowledge of the harms related to smoking and the links to chronic disease. The program also provides sessions for service providers and others working in tobacco or providing a service to the Aboriginal community.

Sessions include:

  • The risks associated with tobacco use
  • Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)
  • Support service available
  • The Quitline and how to use it
  • The Stages of Change and the Journey to Quit Tobacco Model

If you are interested, please make contact with the team and book a session.
