    Exploring the relationship between substance use and mental health issues.

    This one-day workshop examines the complex relationship between substance use or addiction and mental health problems.

    While they may be independent problems, they regularly co-occur and interact in complex ways, which need to be considered. This course uses evidence-based information about both disorders to help support workers to offer more holistic support.

    The course includes take-home references and tools for use afterwards.

    Content covered includes:

    • Identifying the relationship between mental health and substance use
    • Signs and symptoms
    • Causes and risk factors
    • Integrated treatment options
    • Interactions between psychiatric medications and substances of abuse
    • Strategies for combating stigma related to concurrent disorders
    • Best practices for treatment and support
    • The relationship between WA’s Mental Health and Alcohol + Other Drugs Sectors
