Legal Highs Survey - What is your experience of these?

NHS Tayside is conducting a survey on behalf of the local Alcohol & Drug Partnerships to improve our understanding of "legal highs", also known as New Psychoactive Substances (NPS).

We'd like to hear from you, whether you currently take them, have taken them in the past or have never taken them.

The survey is anonymous and confidential and the information will only be used to improve services.

Please complete the survey here.


Sex - It's healthy to talk about it

Is there something new you'd like to try or something you don't want to try but don't know how to have that conversation with your partner?

Why not visit http://www.sexualhealthscotland.co.uk/ and take a look at their new campaign?  It has helpful hints and "how to" videos to help you start that all important conversation.  We want to encourage people to feel confident having frank, honest and positive conversations about sex and making them part and parcel of every day relationships.
