Event description

Description


The Substance Use & Stigma awareness sessions are part of the Recovery Friendly Dundee initiative which aims to tackle stigma surrounding substance misuse and raise awareness of the links between health inequalities and substance misuse.

What can I expect?

These awareness sessions provide a basic introduction to the topic and facilitate a shared learning experience for participants.

The sessions are designed to critically explore the topic with participants and facilitators will use approaches which aim to create debate and discussion.

The session is interactive and participants will be expected to engage in large and small group discussion and activities.

What not to expect

These sessions are intended as a basic introduction and will not include a thorough analysis of the topic. If you are seeking a more in-depth analysis of stigma theories and evidence, we would recommend looking into the full day training offered by the Scottish Drugs Forum.

Who are the sessions for?

These sessions are specifically for those who provide a broad range of services in Dundee and the content of the sessions is in line with this focus. We welcome attendance from those out with Dundee but ask that you contact us in advance of making a booking if this is the case.

Who delivers the sessions?

The sessions are delivered by Community Health Workers and Community Health Nurses who are experienced and knowledgable in the field of community health and tackling health inequalities. As well as delivering the training, facilitators bring their own experience of providing health-focused support for individuals and communities.
