|School Drug Education and Road Aware (SDERA) is the WA State Government’s primary drug and road safety education strategy. Our purpose is to contribute to the prevention of road related injuries and the harms from drug use. SDERA is governed by a Management Committee with representation from the primary funding bodies and each of the education sector/systems. SDERA works with schools and the wider community to provide prevention education aimed at keeping young people safer.
SDERA empowers school based staff, parents and community agencies, through our professional learning workshops and support resources, to develop effective drug and road safety education programs within their schools and communities. We are providers of best practice road safety, resilience and drug education.
SDERA Ambassadors all have a professional history of service to WA. They support SDERA in our aim of improving the mental health, wellbeing and resilience of young people so that they can become healthy, responsible young adults.
SDERA is funded through the Mental Health Commission and the Road Trauma Trust Account.
