Mental Health and Substance Use

This one-day course is designed to increase awareness of the link between substance misuse and mental health issues.

This will not be beneficial to those with prior mental health training. Learning outcomes: Participants can expect to:

  • gain an overview of mental health presentations including mood disorder, anxiety, personality disorder and psychosis;
  • become familiar with the potential link between mental health presentations and substance misuse;
  • attain knowledge of risk behaviour in association with mental health and substance misuse;
  • develop an awareness of dual diagnosis: the co-existence of mental health issues and addiction; and
  • develop an ability to adapt theoretical knowledge to work with service users.

This course maps to the following dimensions: KSF – Core 1, 2, 4 & 6. HWB – 1 & 3. DANOS – AA1, AD1 & HSC35.
