Public Health England: Better care for people with co-occurring mental health and alcohol/drug use conditions

This Public Health England (PHE) guide, developed with the support of NHS England, should be used by the commissioners and providers of mental health and alcohol and drug treatment services, to inform the commissioning and provision of effective care for people with co-occurring mental health and alcohol/drug use conditions. It also has relevance for all other services that have contact with people with co-occurring conditions, including people experiencing mental health crisis. It is an action for PHE from the Crisis Care Concordat national action plan. It has been co-produced with members of the expert reference group for co-existing substance misuse with mental health issues, and in consultation with experts through experience, service providers, practitioners, commissioners and policy leads.

The full guidance can be viewed here.
