Launch of SAOL and Citywide’s Anti-Stigma Research

SAOL’s anti-stigma research, created in partnership with Citywide and evaluated by the team from Trinity College Dublin, was launched yesterday. The whole project was produced using a co-design process with women who have experience of drug use, and the results showed that training made a significant impact in reducing stigma amongst service providers.

The research was launched with a special guest appearance from none other than Mary Coughlan. Check out the videos below, and click to hear reactions to an amazing day from our very own SAOL Sisters.

Today was brilliant. It was exciting.

I had a brilliant day. I enjoyed being around Mary Coughlan, very down to earth woman… I feel like she was here with us before. She’s after making me day, absolutely brilliant.
