  • Personal experiences of women and men impacted by substance use disorder and family planning needs

    This is a public awareness and promotional video for the Link Study, an applied research study to improve the quality and coordination of substance use disorder (SUD) and family planning services. It includes women and men speaking candidly about their struggles with SUD and their need for family planning services, including contraception and testing for sexually transmitted infections. The video serves to educate the public, while also appealing to SUD and family planning providers who are interested in being part of the study's cross-training to improve screening, referrals, and community linkages for individuals with these needs.
