Bendigo Community Health Services and Burnet Institute is embarking on an All Time High regional roadshow to support professionals working with people using any type of drug.

The roadshow will involve a series of workshops covering topics such as evolving drug patterns, injecting behaviour among forensic cohort and Hep C transmission in communities that inject drugs.

Castlemaine, Maryborough, Echuca, Swan Hill and Mildura will host roadshow stops.

The roadshow is an expansion of the successful Bendigo All Time High forums run by Bendigo Community Health Services last year.

The State Government's Ice Action Plan will fund the roadshow with Minister for Mental Health Martin Foley announcing the grant during a visit to Bendigo last year.
