The Steven Blacker Memorial Walk. Produced by Re-Solv in 2007, this documents the awareness walk marking the first anniversary of the death of 14 year old Steven Blacker from volatile substance abuse (VSA).
Originally intended as part of a pack for schools including a video and a work book for teachers.
An Aberdeenshire parent (and teacher) who lost her youngest son to VSA at the age of 15 describes the circumstances that lead to his death.

These audio interviews are between Re-Solv’s Scottish Field Officer and young people who are ‘looked after’ and live in a residential establishment. The interviews took place in August 2007 and the recordings were used as part of a national one-day conference on volatile subtance abuse (VSA). The young people talk about their experience of ‘buzzing’ or ‘sniffing’ solvents.
