A new Prince Edward Island-made short film speaks to the importance of seeking help as the first step in recovering from addiction.

Health PEI commissioned Island filmmaker Jenna MacMillan to bring greater awareness to addictions and their relationship to mental health. The 10-minute documentary-style short includes interviews with clinicians from a variety of services available to Islanders and their families and is available at youtu.be/pBvWBV7G1Mw

“There is a lot of stigma around addiction,” said registered nurse and Addictions Services East supervisor Susan Silva, who is one of several health care providers featured in the film. Silva herself is six years into her recovery from alcohol addiction.

“People tend to view people as being weak and that’s not the case,” she said. “I have struggled with this myself and almost didn’t survive my addiction. To be able to be on this side of things and to be able to give back to people is such a blessing.”
