Mental Health Professionals’ Network – Free AOD CPD Webinar
Complexities in working with co-occurring mental health and alcohol and other drug presentations
Attend this webinar produced by the Mental Health Professionals’ Network to learn about harm reduction, abstinence, stigma and mental health challenges that people may face due to their current or past use of AOD.
The interdisciplinary panel of experts will discuss the difference between harm reduction and abstinence and how these approaches relate to the mental health of people currently using or who have used AOD in the past.
Areas of discussion include associated stigma and the importance of language and communication when providing care to people seeking assistance for AOD use. Panellists will also present strategies to engage specialist services when supporting people who are experiencing mental health challenges due to use of AOD.
