Welcome to Session 7 of the NHS APA 2021 Virtual Conference.
In this session, we will be joined by speakers from the Citywide Drugs Crisis Campaign, a national network of community activists and community organisations that are involved in responding to Ireland's drugs crisis.
Gary Broderick and Paula Kearny from SAOL, an integrated programme of education, rehabilitation, advocacy and childcare based in the north inner city, Dublin will be presenting on how they developed a trauma informed anti-stigma training programme for drug services. Over the last 25 years SAOL has aimed to promote the needs of women who use substances and their children and highlight the many extra difficulties that face these women including the stigma attached to being a woman/mother who uses drugs. The team developed a service user informed training system and manual about addressing stigma across delivery of services.
This programme was also supported by Professor Catherine Comiskey, who supported the evaluation and co-design of the CityWide pilot anti-stigma training programme.
At the end of this presentation there will be the opportunity for live Q&A with the presenters.
