ICE-MH VDDI DIRECTORY Acute Behavioural Disturbance

1st August 2016: Clinicians working in Acute Mental Health Inpatient Services are frequently faced with challenges around the management of people with Acute Behavioural Disturbance - especially in regard to the increasing prevalence of people presenting with Methamphetamine-Related Presentations (MRP). There are a number of current and in-development guidelines, presentations and papers which may assist.


This resource – current at August 2016 – attempts to catalogue and provide links to the most useful, current resources.

The Comorbidity Guidelines aim to:

  • Increase the knowledge and awareness of co-occurring mental health conditions in AOD treatment settings;
  • Improve the confidence and skills of AOD workers; and
  • Increase the uptake of evidence-based care.

An online training program related to this project is also currently under development by the NDARC project team, and will soon be available. To be notified when the training program is available, you may wish to register your name and email address here.
