SUBSTANCE USE AND MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS: CO-OCCURING

The Professional Development People
 

 Strategies for supporting people with co-occurring AOD and mental health issues.
Presenter: Alison Bell

The challenges associated with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse conditions have been of increasing concern for individuals, support networks and a range of services such as mental health and AOD services. The potential for enormous personal cost to the individual and their support network is great, with evidence of a higher incidence of hospitalisation, greater risk of homelessness, higher rates of criminal activity, poorer treatment outcomes, poorer health status, lower life expectancy, and increased rates of completed suicide compared to people experiencing mental health condition or substance abuse alone.

The aim of this one-day workshop is to increase the awareness of the impact of co-occurring substance use and mental health conditions. The workshop will provide opportunities for participants to gain skills for supporting people to reduce the impact of AOD and mental health conditions on their lives.

Comprehensive resource notes are provided to all participants for reference during and following the training. There will be opportunities for participants to practice and reflect on skills throughout the workshop.
