Drug reporting in the media

Do you have an opinion about how the media reports on drugs? The first ever study in Australia into youth attitudes to media reporting on drugs is being held. now.

Why is this important? • Drugs are one of the most topical issues of media reporting. • Drugs are also the number one concern for Australian youth. • Youth deserve a voice in how media report on drugs. DPMP want to be able to show the government and media outlets in Australia what young people think about media reporting on drugs. The more people we hear from, the more likely they are to listen. So if you’re aged 16-24 and live in Australia, and haven’t done our survey, we would love to hear what you think about media reporting on illicit drugs! Please visit http://drugmediasurvey.com/ to take our 10-20 minute online survey.  The more participants we get, the more your voice will count.

This study is being conducted by the Drug Policy Modelling Program and is commissioned by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing. This is a study about media reporting so you don’t need to have tried drugs to participate. Thank you for your help!  — Bridget Spicer Research Officer National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre University of New South Wales Sydney, NSW 2052 Australia Tel: http://ndarc.med.unsw.edu.au/ndarc.nsf
