CAPSA

CAPSA is a National leader on the topic of stigma, its impacts on individuals who use substances or have a substance use disorder and on identifying and correcting instances of systemic stigma imbedded in organizations. Employing subject matter experts, with living experience, CAPSA works with organizations to provide education around substance use, stigma related to substance use, in particular towards people with substance use disorders. We also recognize that people in Canada with concurrent substance use and mental health disorders experience even greater systemic harms. We train people and equip organizations to use person-first language to reduce stigma and discrimination.
