Help us encourage everyone to #seethefullpicture and reduce the stigma and discrimination associated with Multiple Disadvantage.”

Learn about different true stories, like Stephanie´s:
“The unexpected death of her mum, in the flat where she lived was a significant trigger in the development of Stephanie’s needs. Since then Stephanie has struggled with homelessness, addiction, re-offending and mental ill health.
Stephanie was drinking six litres of cider a day. Her addiction had lead to problems such as being arrested for drink driving. She was not engaging with any services to address this. Her physical health then deteriorated because she had stopped eating and had become severely underweight. Stephanie was also diagnosed with depression and anxiety, which she was prescribed medication for. She stopped taking this due to her drinking.”
