Other Workshops

I just wanted to pass feedback on DJ and Jay and the impact they have had at Blackwater Mine.

We have had an overwhelmingly positive response on the delivery of the content and how we have taken the time to get this important message to the crews. We have had a few share some of their personal experiences with friends and family members and their battles with this evil drug.

I believe we will organise a time for more session with crews that couldn't attend to continue this important safety message.

I'll be forwarding an email to the other mine sites in our group to pass on your details and explain how valuable these talks have been to us here at Blackwater.

Another step in the right direction for my son. Yesterday started AA. 1 on 1 councilling. Booked again for next week. 

Today went to work with my husband to learn to operate bobcat & excavator. 

Next week his off to sydney for 4 days to be educated on addiction. An amazing man that my son contacted on this site who is a team leader for the AAIC sydney, arrange this for my son who feels extremely special from this gesture. I cant wait to see this outcome.

Afternoon Mike,

Once again, thank you so much for today.

You are truly a passionate, inspirational and professional presenter. The feedback I have had from staff has been excellent, with several people stating that it’s the best staff training day they have ever attended!!!!

Knowing what a tough group correctional officers can be, you should be very proud about this feedback, it’s wonderful!!!!

As you know, my Deputy General Manager was in attendance during the afternoon session. He was extremely impressed and is going to write an email of thanks and support, which will hopefully assist in your quest to take the AAIC into every high school in Australia.

Thank you again Mike, hopefully we will work together again in the future and I may be lucky enough to meet your mum J

I sat through a session that was presented in Dysart today by a very brave young man. He did a wonderful job and was so very brave to open up completely his emotions and his story of ice addiction. 

What is eve better is that he survived this terrible time and had come out on the other side now campaigning against this awful drug and the effect it is having not only on the person that is addicted but their families, friends and society in general.

I’m not terribly religious but, may God bless you and take care of you so that you can continue on your journey campaigning against Ice. 

To anyone that needs help please contact this organisation as they do a wonderful job. 

Only sorry I didn’t get the presenters name. 

You have changed my life more than you know.

As the President and Founder of “In 2 Bat” for those in need, I am very proud and happy to be associated with the dedicated and professional team at AAIC. The work they do in educating children and their families on the severe dangers and life threatening reactions to this evil drug is outstanding.

Some of our Caseworkers mentioned it may be beneficial to highlight earlier in the presentation the reasons why young people may use Ice (masking emotional pain, avoiding problems etc). All staff felt that having facilitators with real world experience in both using and recovering from Ice use was great in regards to connecting with the young people in an authentic way and assisting with the delivery of the content.
