THE State Government today launched a website to collect community views on the impacts of methamphetamine.

People directly affected by methamphetamine, along with health service providers, community workers and business owners, are invited to share their experiences in the SurveyMonkey questionnaire.

The input will help the Methamphetamine Action Plan (MAP) Taskforce advise the government on ways to minimise harm and reduce the supply and demand of the drug in WA.

Health Minister Roger Cook said understanding the views, insights and challenges faced by those directly affected by methamphetamine use was vital to the work of the Methamphetamine Action Plan Taskforce.

“I encourage anyone affected to take the opportunity to comment, as their insight will help shape the taskforce’s advice to Government on how to respond to the complexities and challenges of WA’s meth issue and how best to meet the needs of those most vulnerable in our community,” Mr Cook said.

The online comment period is open until March 16.
