Concurrent disorders is a term used to describe a situation where a person is struggling with both mental health and substance use problems.
On November 8th, McMaster University, St. Joseph’s Healthcare, Otsuka Canada, and Healthy Minds Canada hosted an free educational community event about concurrent disorders where leading psychiatrists and researchers presented on current approaches to understanding and treating people struggling with addictions and mental illness. Feedback from the filled-to-capacity room was amazing with most indicating that they are already looking forward to the next event!
