Gord Garner, Executive Director of Community Addictions Peer Support Association (CAPSA) and Chair of Ottawa Recovery Day, will be discussing the significance of using person-first-language and non-stigmatizing language and how it can change the outcomes for people who use substances or have substance use disorder. Gord will be sharing powerful stories and evidence of his lived experiences with substance use and how being conscious of the language we use can shift the stigma and stereotypes that surrounds this mental health condition. Attendees will learn about actions that can be taken to work towards making a change and shifting perspectives. Join us to learn how you can change the conversation.
