Chemcheck is a groupwork programme for gay and bisexual men engaged in chemsex.
Chemcheck is a new initiative combining the experience & knowledge from the teams at Antidote, Lifeline’s After Party service & Burrell St Sexual Health Service. It’s a 6 week programme designed specifically to help you address questions, concerns or possible issues around your chem use in a friendly, safe non-judgemental environment
Who is it for?
Chemcheck is for men 18+ from the boroughs of Lambeth, Southwark or Lewisham who identify as a Gay, Bi, trans or MSM (men who have sex with men). The group is aimed at people looking at how they can take steps to ensure greater control over their use & would like to explore some of those issues which could potentially lead to more problematic use.
What does it involve?
Chemcheck is a group programme which runs over 6 weeks on Tuesday evenings from 18.00 until 19.30. We will explore a series of subjects which will help you to understand and explore issues such as:
- Making changes
- Self Esteem & Confidence
- Sex & Sexuality
- Relationships & intimacy
- Negotiating boundaries
- Relaxation & stress management
Chemcheck is an opportunity for you to explore your attitudes & behaviours in relation to chem use in a safe, supportive space. To ensure that you get the most out of the programme it’s advisable that you commit to all 6 sessions.
