Words Are Important
A couple years ago we talked to the community of people who use drugs about how language impacted their lives and overall wellbeing.
We put together some guidelines that explain how stigma can be present in our language and the want we talk to/about people who use drugs.
To report stigmatising language in the Irish media (TV, newspapers, online articles) email firstname.lastname@example.org.
View and download our language guidelines – UISCE- Stigmatising language and preferred terminology.
