About a Career in Harm Reduction

There is an increasing demand for support workers who have appropriate skills in harm reduction.

The number of people in Manitoba who experience harm as a result of their desire to live at risk is growing. This includes people who choose to use substances or engage in higher risk sexual activity. Local governments are exploring solutions to help people living at risk, and this means there is an increasing demand for support workers who have appropriate skills in harm reduction. More often than not, when people look back on the times they seek services, they say the thing that helped them the most are people who had a non-judgemental, accepting attitude. Harm reduction support workers have the opportunity to make a real difference in people’s lives.
