How do substances and mental health mix?
What is the function of addiction?
How can we have better conversations about drug and alcohol use?
We’re going to think about the emotional, physical, cultural and societal ideas around drugs, alcohol and what it all means in relation to mental health (without the stigma and judgement that often comes with talking about these experiences).
Through sharing a variety of lived and professional experiences, we explore ways to have compassionate conversations around drugs and alcohol, whether you are facing your own challenges, or supporting or working with someone who is.
This course will open up a conversation about some of the tools and strategies that have helped people in managing and supporting addiction.
