FERNDALE – A focus group of metro Detroit LGBTs will take place on Monday, Dec. 19 at 7 p.m. at the offices of the Midwest AIDS Prevention Project. MAPP will conduct the focus group to learn about knowledge levels and attitudes among gay people regarding the drug methamphetamine, which is also known as “crystal meth.” A small cash stipend will be given to each participant.
MAPP has begun promoting knowledge and awareness of the serious health issues around meth use, and has secured grants to study the problem in the Michigan LGBT community and to develop an educational and social marketing campaign. MAPP has also set up the first weekly support group for LGBT persons who are trying to stop using meth. The support group meets every Monday evening in Ferndale at 7 p.m. at Affirmations Lesbian and Gay Community Center.
For more information call MAPP at 248-545-1435.
