Mental Health Forum - Northern Region


22nd October 2019

Substance Abuse and Mental Health

10:30am - 12:30pm

Riverlinks Eastbank, Shepparton



According to the Better Health (Victorian State Government), “about 25 per cent of people with anxiety disorders, affective disorders and substance use disorders also have another mental disorder. Around 64 per cent of psychiatric in-patients may have a current or previous drug use problem. Around 75 per cent of people with alcohol and substance use problems may have a mental illness. About 90 per cent of males with schizophrenia may have a substance use problem.”The realisation that substance misuse and mental illness can be linked is quite recent, so research is scant. Mental Health Foundation Australia recognises this and would like to address this steadily raising issue and create awareness among the community by organizing the Northern Regional Forum on the 22nd of October 2019 as a part of the National Mental Health Month 2019.
