Youth Dual Diagnosis Resource
Oct 21, 2016
This Youth Dual Diagnosis Resource Guide was developed in 2015 by the Victorian network Building Up Dual Diagnosis in Youth Services (BUDDYS) whose members make up the Victorian Dual Diagnosis Initiative. The guide was developed for anyone who works with young people who have a dual diagnosis. Though this guide was developed for the Victorian service system the content is relevant for service providers in other states. The guide covers five practice areas; Adolescent development, drug use and mental health, the helping alliance, young people in their social context, harm reduction and integrated treatment and working with young people.
