‘Diary of a Recovering Drug Addict' Screened at Online Film Festival

A film produced as part of a Leeds-led research project has been selected for screening at the Changing the Story Online International Film Festival, taking place between the 1st - 5th June 2020.

The film is a participant-led, co-production created as part of the Global Challenges Research Fund project ‘The Big Picture’ led by School of Psychology professor, Anna Madill. The project focuses on understanding the lived experience of young Assamese people around risk, recovery and resilience in relation to substance use disorder. The goal is to increase knowledge, enhance the voice of young people, and inform practice through impacting policy and promoting public awareness.

‘Diary of a Recovering Drug Addict’ will be screened on the festival website on Tuesday 2nd June at 2pm (BST). It highlights four chapters of a recovering addicts life, from before addiction to recovery, documenting the thoughts and feelings of recovering addicts throughout the process. Find out more about what you can expect from the documentary. On the day, there will also be other films dedicated to films about mental health, loss and loneliness. View the CTS international film festival programme.
