Network event: Supporting people with alcohol dependence and co-morbidities
no comments

Here is a great opportunity for those working at the intersection of mental health and addiction studies to connect with others who are working in this space: the Mental Health Implementation Network (MHIN) is holding an online event exploring how support for patients with alcohol dependence and co-occurring mental and physical illness can be improved.

It is taking place on Monday 18 March from 14:00-17:00.


What to expect

The MHIN will be delving into how Alcohol Assertive Outreach Treatment (AAOT) can help alleviate some of the social, health and economic pressures in this area, bringing in perspectives from some of the experts in alcohol addiction services, including research innovators and people with lived experience of alcohol dependence. They will explore the practical challenges and benefits of implementing AAOT in three regions with high levels of unmet needs.


Who is it for?

  • Commissioners and policymakers working in local government, health and social care, including Voluntary and Community Sector organisations.
  • Clinicians, practitioners, and researchers working in substance use, mental health and multiple complex needs
  • People with lived experience of these co-occurring health issues, their carers, and advocates for person-centred health support in general
  • Anyone interested in hearing about innovative approaches to tackling multimorbidity within groups often underserved by the health system.
