School of Public Health videos aim to tackle stigma around drug use

The Gateway, April 17, 2019

A joint project between three universities is sharing the stories of parents [including 3 members of MSTH] who have lost a child to drug use.

Released last month, the project is a joint research effort between the University of Alberta’s School of Public Health, the O’Brien Institute for Public Health at the University of Calgary, and the School of Nursing at the University of British Columbia. Part of the project includes videos of the parents they interviewed narrating letters they wrote to their child who died by substance use.
