This website and online training program was developed by Dr Christina Marel, Associate Professor Katherine Mills, Mr Jack Wilson and Professor Maree Teesson at the Centre of Research Excellence in Mental Health and Substance Use (CREMS), University of New South Wales, Sydney.

The website and training aim to facilitate the translation and online dissemination of the “Guidelines on the management of co-occurring alcohol and other drug and mental health conditions in alcohol and other drug treatment settings (2nd edition)” published in 2016. Although developed primarily for alcohol and other drug workers, the content may also be useful for other healthcare providers, as well as people undertaking studies in mental health, alcohol and other drugs, and public health.

The development of this website and online training program was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, and was conducted in consultation with consumers, carers, clinicians, academics, researchers and policy makers.

This website hosts the online content of the Guidelines, online training program, and links to other resources.
