Ep.12 Emma- Stigma vs love

Update: 2019-08-23


This episode of Straight from the Source is a little different, in this episode Emma, the Systemic Advocacy Lead at APSU and podcast host, talks about a little part of her story and her previous partner Dan’s story. The story is about young love, supporting a partner through addiction and the human impact of criminalisation and stigma.

‘Straight from the Source’  looks at a range of different issues relevant to those impacted by drug and alcohol use from varying perspectives and talks real, honest stories, straight from the source.

We will have more guests and more stories coming to you monthly.

Straight from The Source is the voice of the Association of Participating Service Users (APSU), a service of the Self-Help Addiction Resource Centre (SHARC).  APSU is a Victorian consumer representative body, which believes that the needs, strengths and expertise of people who use drugs and alcohol should drive the system and their voices should be heard.

Podcast episodes and further information on APSU is accessible through APSU online, APSU Facebook  and through major podcast apps.

Just a reminder that the views expressed by our guests are not necessarily reflective of those of APSU and SHARC.
