Mindgardens makes its research more impactful by creating, in collaboration with Members and partners, practical and accessible resources to assist consumers and professionals.
Co-occurring mental health and drug and alcohol support
This directory of online and telephone resources and online training was developed by the South Eastern Sydney LHD Drug and Alcohol Services Comorbidity Clinical Pathways Project to assist clinicians in supporting clients with mild to moderate conditions, where specialist mental health or alcohol and other drug services are not required. Funded by Mindgardens, the package includes resources that specifically address co-occurring mental health and substance use, as well resources that focus only on alcohol and other drug use or only mental health.
“I know that if I go for a run or a swim, it will actually settle my mind and get me back on track to do my life.”
This video resource features the experiences of people who have joined the Keeping the Body In Mind (KBIM) Program, which supports people living with a mental health condition to improve their physical health through exercise, diet and smoking cessation. Mindgardens funds research programs to investigate the effectiveness of KBIM and find new ways to promote physical health in this group.
