About the session
Session 6 of the NHS APA Conference 2022 is hosted by Colleen Lally and Natalie Needham from Recovery Wellness Collective CIC.
In this session, Colleen and Natalie discuss 'Stitch Away The Stigma', a creative campaign for those affected by a loved one's addiction. The campaign's aim is to increase awareness of the effects of a loved one's substance use or gambling on those closest to them.
The campaign also aims to diminish the stigma that is often closely connected to substance use and gambling.
