Supporting youth who are experiencing both substance use and mental health issues.
The concurrent disorders program provides services, information and support to youth who are experiencing a combination of emotional and/or psychiatric problems in addition to problematic substance use.
We have concurrent disorders therapists to support youth who:
- Receive services through child and youth mental health teams or
- Are receiving services at a community youth substance use services program
Youth concurrent disorders therapists work alongside the youth to provide assessment, planning, connection to psychiatry, and brief counselling.
Youth and young adult under 24 years old.
