note = "six online videos 'Philip': 2:50 mins 'Louisa': 2:17 mins 'Brendan': 5:14 mins 'Lyn': 2:47 mins 'LemLei': 3:02 mins 'Johan': 2:37 mins Research Background: An important part of clinical education about mental health and substance use is the lived experience of people in recovery and their carers. This often takes the form of individuals telling their stories in person at seminars, workshops and educational institutions. However, this is not always possible and therefore videos and other media can be preferable to ensure adequate recognition of lived experience. Communication design facilitates this lived experience but there are issues with regards to representation and anonymity. Research Contribution: Representations of drug, alcohol and mental health issues are often shown as triumph over the odds or a tragedy to be avoided. Similar to common stereotypes found in representations of disability, this ignores the diversity of lived experience found in the broad range of individuals who access services designed to help them. Also absent are the voices of carers who are often sidelined when their partner or family member are seeking help. Straight Up, commissioned by NEXUS, St.Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne, is a series of six animated documentaries that explore the lives of four individuals in recovery and two carers. Research Significance: The Straight Up documentaries will be used by drug, alcohol and mental health counsellors across Australia. It will feature in tertiary level programs in social work. Straight Up will be launched May 10 at Docklands Library to 150 guests from the social work and community services sector.",
