My Journey Begins with Compassion

“Stigma is a major barrier to the well-being and recovery of people with lived and living experience of substance use disorders. This animated video about two friends, Alex and Sam, explores the devastating impact of substance use stigma and how to challenge it in our communities. Drawing on themes from CCSA’s qualitative research on stigma, “My Journey Begins with Compassion” tells a story of friendship, kindness and changing negative perceptions of people who use substances.”
