Navigating the stress & stigma of a parent's substance use can be stressful! But there is hope in finding safety.

About this event

Coping with the stress & stigma of a parent's substance use can be stressful! But there is hope.

As peers, we know how stressful the experiences associated with a parent's unaddressed trauma and substance use (drugs, like alcohol) can be, especially as stigma often makes it difficult to talk about it or seek out support.

Join us for 1.5 hours to learn how the stress and stigma of a parent's substance use can impact us and how we can move forward in more healthy and positive ways.

We will talk about:

  • Stress and the brain
  • How stress influences our thoughts, emotions, and behaviours.
  • What is stigma, and how might it be affecting us?
  • Who are my safer people and spaces?

You are not alone, and you were never meant to carry this stress alone.
