Addictions and Mental Health

November 24, 2021

Many people who experience mental health concerns also live with an addiction. While working with multiple issues at the same time is complicated, recovery from both of these issues is possible with an integrated, person-centered, and trauma-informed approach. This workshop provides a framework for assisting people to move forward with healthy ways of coping. Participants will explore the experience of living with an addiction and mental health concerns, be provided with an understanding of contributing and protective factors, and learn how to integrate strategies in a way that respects the person and supports their health.

Some of the Topics Included:

  • Exploring Stigma, Silence, and Shame
  • The Links Between Mental Health and Addiction
  • The Impact of Helper Beliefs and Assumptions
  • Barriers to Getting Help
