Derbyshire residents urged to take part in survey about ‘legal highs’

Have your say

A national survey that aims to gather information about the use of ‘legal highs’ is being supported by Derbyshire County Council.

The Legal High National Online Survey is the UK’s first independent, national, confidential online survey specifically about residents’ use and views of novel psychoactive substances – also known as ‘legal highs’.

The survey – which is open only to residents aged 18 and over – aims to gather information about which legal highs are being used in different parts of the country.

Feedback will give Derbyshire County Council a clearer picture of what is happening in the county and help health professionals meet the needs of people who have mental and physical health issues because of legal high use.

Derbyshire County Council’s Deputy Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Paul Smith said: “This survey has the potential to provide good, accurate information that we currently lack – information about legal high use in Derbyshire, what people are taking and their experiences.

“The results will be invaluable.”

Visit to take part in the survey before September 30.
