See Change Sessions with Alittlegail S3- Ep13: Getting uncomfortable talking about addiction and overdoses

Welcome to See Change Sessions with Alittlegail! This podcast, created by See Change and hosted by Abigail McDonnell, is all about starting the conversation and breaking the stigma surrounding mental health and the difficulties that may come within it. On this weeks episode, Abigail is joined by guest Denise Joy, S.W.A.A.T. (Supporting Women to Access Appropriate Treatment) Coordinator at Ballyfermot Star CLG. For the month of August, we will be joined by our partner organisations and supporters in order to get uncomfortable talking about mental health difficulties.
