This pilot study was funded by a UNSW “near miss” award following an application to NHMRC. This project recruited 15 men who had recently been in prison in Victoria to participate in an interview. The men were asked to discuss issues about drug use, housing, relationships and programs that supported their transition from prison. A second NHMRC application was successful and this project was rolled into that larger project.
