About this Workshop

In this workshop, participants will learn about the relationship between substance use and mental health. Participants will increase their understanding of mental ill health and how a person's overall level of well-being can affect their level of substance use, as well as how their substance use can in turn influence their mental health.

Learn how to support clients with multiple needs

In this workshop participants will increase their knowledge of substance use rates in Tasmania. They will learn why some people might be at increased risk of substance use issues, why they might choose to use drugs, and why they might be more likely to become addicted to them.

Participants will leave this session with increased awareness of the tools and resources available to support somebody who is using substances while experiencing mental ill health, and where additional help and information can be accessed when needed.
