Dara Russell - Substance Misuse Service User Involvement Coordinator for Mind in Brighton and Hove is looking for people to participate in a project for women engaging with Substance Misuse Services (SMS) of all kinds in Brighton and Hove.
"This project is open to all those who identify as a woman, and also to those who may not identify as a woman but feel this is how they are often perceived by others.
The purpose of this short survey is to ask you a few questions about your experiences, successes and challenges in treatment and recovery. Your story, along with the stories of others, will help me to produce a written report that gets fed back to commissioners of SMS who are interested in hearing your feedback on what’s gone well and what could be done differently.
Your feedback will be completely anonymous within the report and you will only be identified by Mind in Brighton and Hove should you chose to leave your email address for the prize draw: the prize draw will be a £25 One4All gift card which can be spent at various locations. However, this is not compulsory: you may remain completely anonymous if you wish by not leaving your email.
The main purpose of this project is to ensure that your valuable, important feedback is heard at a commissioning level so that services supporting those impacted by substance misuse are informed by those with lived experience and knowledge.
I want to sincerely thank you for being part of this research and giving me your time and energy!"
Click here to take part in the survey which closes on Friday 12th March.
