Is it possible to fully recover? What aids recovery? Is recovery only about addiction? How do the views of others impact recovery? What does recovery look like? Can we recover on our own?

These questions, and others like it, were pondered when Listen Up!’s community reporters met in 2022 to think about Recovery Month which takes place every September.

Karen and Laura are community reporters with the Listen Up project; a lived experience-led project, kickstarting major change towards better healthcare access and life expectancy for people facing homelessness.

In this podcast, Karen and Laura share their experiences of recovery, addiction, mental health and homelessness giving hope to others and sharing what helped them get through.
