Substance use + mental health comorbidity consumer resources

NDARC has launched a series of new resources for those living with both substance use and mental health issues. The resources are targeted at consumers of mental health and alcohol and other drug services Australia-wide and include an explanation of mental health conditions, how these are linked to substance use, the interplay between the two disorders, how to recognise and manage symptoms, and where to go for help. The 5 booklets are :

Anxiety + Substance use.
Mood + Substance use
Personality + Substance use
Psychosis + Substance use
Trauma + Substance use

The booklets may also be ordered in hard copy.

The NDARC site also has several other resources available.
