We are pleased to announce the launch of our new toolkit for families affected by co-occurring mental ill-health and substance use conditions (dual diagnosis). It contains resources and suggestions for anyone affected by someone else's co occurring conditions. Much of the information is drawn from guidance from professionals, including those working to support families on a daily basis. We welcome practitioners to share this with families they support.
You can download the toolkit here.
You can read more about our work with families affected by a loved one's co-occurring conditions here. Last year we carried out a detailed consultation with family members, to build an accurate and honest picture of the very real ways families are affected by dual diagnosis. By speaking with and listening to families, we set out to understand what it is really like to have a loved one with a dual diagnosis, and what needs to be done to ensure the needs of families are met and not forgotten.
This work has been funded by the Sir Halley Stewart Trust.
