Where Else Am I Supposed To Go?

A learning resource to counteract substance use stigma

This video was co-developed by the Community Addiction Peer Support Association, the Vancouver Community Action Team Anti-Stigma Working Group, Kílala Lelum Urban Indigenous Health and Healing Cooperative and the EQUIP Health Care Research team. The story you’re about to hear reflects a synthesis of many people’s lived and living experiences and shows the impact of substance use stigma in health care. This could be difficult for some people to watch. The aim of this video is to learn and take guidance from people’s lived experiences as a step towards improving health care and social services.

Thank you to everyone who shared their stories, expertise, and time to create this video.
