AOD Writing
Workshops

This two-hour workshop is developed for those working in the mental health sector, or in the field of addiction, HIV or eating disorders, who may also have lived experience. It is designed to help workers explore their own personal stories, with exercises that they can then also use with their clients. Services in the past have hosted it via Zoom or on their premises, and tend to advertise it via their newsletters and social media.
