VAADA has produced sets of prompt cards – covering AOD, mental health, trauma informed care, CALD, Family Violence and LGBTI – designed to assist health and community service workers who may come across substance use in their work.
The cards provide a list of language appropriate prompts that are relevant to each topic and are aimed at improving efficient communication and referrals. They are hole-punched and suitable for attaching to ID swipe cards and lanyards for easy reference.
- Organisations within Victoria can order sets of prompt cards for free.
- Interstate organisations may attract a fee. We will contact you with details.
- PLEASE NOTE: Organisations or individuals outside of Australia are unable to order cards.
