dual diagnosis and other complex needs

Information contained in this booklet is offered as general information for workers to better understand the relationship between mental health and alcohol and other drug use.

Updated in 2018 this booklet was developed by the Victorian Dual Diagnosis Initiative (VDDI)  through funding provided by the Victoria Department of Health & Human Services. It was originally produced for Aboriginal workers who completed the VDDI's “Introduction to Dual Diagnosis Training”. It is a summary of the key themes in the three-day training program.
