Challenge Addiction Stigma with The Basement Recovery Project

Stigma causes the mentally ill to suffer in silence.

Now is the time to reach out. Be a Champion.

Are you passionate about challenging the stigma surrounding drug and alcohol addictions in Calderdale?

Join us as an Addiction Anti-Stigma Champion and be a driving force in changing the narrative around mental health.

As an Addiction Anti-Stigma Champion, individuals with lived experience of addiction play a crucial role in transforming societal attitudes and behaviours. Research underscores the power of conversation in dismantling stigma, making our stories invaluable tools for change.

Our champions bring authenticity to the forefront. You don ’t need to be an expert – just bring your genuine self. The role encompasses a variety of activities, from participating in workshops and events to actively shaping the direction of our work.

Join us in this transformative role and become a powerful advocate against addiction stigma in Calderdale. Your authentic voice can spark real change!
