Psychosocial Research and Intervention Group (GRIP)

Written on

Fierté Montréal Festival collaborates with the GRIP in preparation of the festival and on its main site.

The Psychosocial Research and Intervention Group (GRIP) provides a series of training sessions on the effects of substance overdoses for the security personnel working on the Olympic Park's Esplanade, so they can offer psychosocial support related to the use of alcohol or drugs.

The Group also distributes Naloxone kits and safe drinking materials, and offers substance analysis services during the festival.
