'My Story’ saw a group of five Normanton community members share their story of hardship and determination
on video to overcome their personal difficulties, as well as share their messages to empower and inspire others.
The ‘My Story’ project is part of a Mount Isa Police District strategy to address attitudes and beliefs about the drug Ice.
Those featured in the video were asked to tell their story and how drugs and/or alcohol impacted their life. Each of them were able to recall a turning point that caused them to turn to drugs and alcohol. They told their story about why they chose to quit, and gave a powerful and unique message to others to stay away from drug and alcohol dependence.
You can help by sharing their video on social media. Mount Isa Police and Normanton community encourage other communities to get involved in sharing their story. Contact Mount Isa Police to get involved in the ‘My Story’ project.
