Some of the country’s leading experts on mental health and substance abuse came together at the University of York on Friday 2nd June to “end the silence” surrounding women and addiction.
We played our part by taking this #WomenAndDrugs event #BeyondTheRoom with blogs, live tweeting, live podcasting and live streaming.
The event itself was a small meeting with around 40 people including researchers, voluntary sector professionals, health professionals and policy makers. We managed to bring 10 times that number to the discussion and made the conversation much more democratic as a result.
