Integrated responses to mental health and substance use disorders

"As a means of coping with deteriorations in mental health and stressors of the pandemic, many parents identified an increase in alcohol use." (Gadermann et al., 2021)

We know that there are high levels of concurrent mental health and substance use disorders and that the pandemic may have exacerbated these co-occurring challenges. We recommend investing into integrated responses that address this concurrency, including upstream support. We recommend the expansion of integrated youth- and family-centered platforms for supporting young people’s mental health, following the model of foundrybc.ca
