We all need to feel confident in being able to access the resources we need to sustain ourselves and our families, to achieve a home where we feel comfortable, create positive relationships and a sense of purpose.
Whilst effective and accessible treatment services are vital, treatment alone is not enough, we also need to ensure that barriers to recovery such as unhelpful stigma and policy are reduced or eliminated, and supporters for recovery can come together to share their views and experiences for the benefit of society.
That's why we have created the following Your Voice campaigns and projects to ensure we speak with a confident voice about what is working and what needs to change.

Stigma and the fear of being stigmatised are an everyday reality. Stigma affects self-esteem and identity, social interaction and relationships and access to recovery resources through local and national policies. Share your stories of stigma with us here.
Stories of recovery shows us all that change is possible. Stories can inspire us and guide us. Share your recovery stories, photographs of recovery memories, poems and artwork here.
