OHSUTP – Ontario HIV and Substance Use Training Program

490 Sherbourne Street, Toronto

Get directions

The Ontario HIV and Substance Use Training Program provides training to substance use, mental health and allied service providers in Ontario in order to increase knowledge of HIV/AIDS and to promote skills development.

OHSUTP is a service of Fife House and is funded by the AIDS Bureau, Ministry of Health and Long-term Care. A provincial Advisory Committee consisting of representatives from substance use and AIDS service organizations provides input into programming issues.

Workshop Topics:

  • HIV/AIDS 201
  • Harm Reduction
  • HCV and HIV Co-infection
  • Substances 101
  • Stigma and Discrimination
  • Disclosure and Legal Issues
  • Counselling Issues

The topics consist of a mix of training materials including PowerPoint’s, exercises, videos, group discussion, and case studies; they can be delivered separately, though we encourage booking the full training. The full training is two days which can be scheduled back to back or over a period of weeks or months. We will work with your organization to determine your needs and which modules are most appropriate.

Depending on staff size, we offer in-house training, or we support you to plan with other allied social services in your area. In nearly every workshop, OHSUTP staff deliver technical information, while “peers”, people living with HIV, are able to compliment this by sharing their experiences an insights.
