Northern Healthy Connections Society offers a program designed to reach out to individuals in the community living with substance-use disorders and allow them to express themselves through photography.
This year (2020) the Photovoice Project is aimed at female-identifying individuals who are former or current substance users. The group will meet one afternoon a week for 10-12 weeks and allows participants to practice good work ethic, find peer support and master a skill with a hands-on sewing project lead by an NHCS staff member.
Photography is a fun, accessible, and therapeutic way to portray your thoughts and feelings. Photovoice programs have been utilized throughout Canada as a creative outlet for social work, community organizations, counselling and more. For more information on what Photovoice means and how you might benefit from it, contact NHCS or stop by the fixed site at 33 Pleasant St, Truro.
