Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

Andorra is a small principality in Europe between France and Spain. Although not many health issues are currently on the rise in the country of Andorra, alcohol and drug abuse has been steadily present for many years. There has not been a ton of knowledge spread throughout the country nor has there been an exploration of solutions for this issue. This is due to a lack in conversation over the topic of health in relation to substance abuse in general. In addition, Andorra has struggled economically for quite some time resulting in low income and poverty, creating vulnerable groups of people. This directly relates to the issue’s main demographic affect which are the ages 15-44. The vulnerable groups regard younger people and people who either have been unemployed, are recently unemployed or do not make a large enough income to live sustainably.
