Drug use and its impact on mental health is causing increasing concern.
People who have problems relating to drugs are more likely to have a mental illness; likewise people with mental health problems are more likely to have drug problems. This dual diagnosis challenges both mental health and drug services to provide effective interventions.
Often when individuals seek help they are passed back and forth between mental health and drug agencies. This exposes gaps in both knowledge and practice.
This book seeks to fill that gap by providing an overview of the link between problem drug use and mental illness for practitioners who work in drug and alcohol services but are not mental health specialists.
It provides essential information on what mental illness is and how mental health services work.
