Changing The Narrative is a network of reporters, researchers, academics, and advocates concerned about the way media represents drug use and addiction.
The mission is to help journalists and opinion leaders provide accurate, humane, and scientifically-grounded information in this contested terrain. This comes in the form of expert sources —including people with lived experience of the issues — and up-to-date, fact-checked, and evidence-based information on news and controversies.
The programme includes:
- Web portal
- Social media monitoring and outreach
- Dissemination at conferences, educational institutions, and other venues
- Changing the Narrative Webcast
