Provision Summary:
The Alcohol and Drug Education and Prevention Information Service (ADEPIS) is a platform for sharing information and resources on alcohol and drug education and prevention for schools and practitioners. Mentor-ADEPIS is publicly acknowledged as the leading source of evidence-based information and tools for alcohol and drug education and prevention. The resources we have already produced draw on eight years of work with the Drug Education Forum, which supported local authorities and schools to implement best practice in alcohol and drug education.

Our resources are free and suitable for both primary and secondary schools as well as practitioners working on alcohol and drug education and prevention in informal and community settings. Among the resources we have produced there are toolkits and guidance documents, briefing papers, lesson plans, research and links signposting to useful organisations, services and resources available.

To access Mentor-ADEPIS resources and see details of upcoming teacher training seminars, visit mentor-adepis.org.

We also offer training and consultancy services for schools and practitioners as part of a Quality Mark offer for effective and evidence based alcohol and drug education.
