ABOUT JUST NORTH
The Just North program addresses volatile substance misuse (VSM) and supports youth workers and other professionals working with young people in Far North Queensland.
If you're a professional who works with young people in Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait Islands we suggest you find us on Facebook.

Just North can provide education in relation to the storage, sale and misuse of inhalable products. The program can assist in developing a response plan and monitor trends with a regional misuse register.

If you are a youth worker or work with young people in another capacity i.e. school, sport & recreation, health, emotional & social wellbeing, disability etc. and you would like to learn more about working better together to improve young people’s future please contact one of our staff.
