New CCSA and MHCC collaborative website and resources

~ From the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addictions

Substance use health (SUH) and mental health (MH) can be closely connected, and many people face challenges relating to both. The Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction (CCSA) and the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) have been working in partnership on several initiatives over the past few years to understand the state of evidence and best practices regarding substance use, mental health and concurrent concerns. This includes:

1. Research on the impacts of cannabis use and cannabis regulation, and
2. Research on the current state of evidence related to integrated SUH and MH service delivery.

We are excited to introduce a new website and new resources that share our findings: 

– The executive summary of the report Integrated Mental Health, Substance Use and Concurrent Disorder Service Deliver
– A summary of the report Experience and Expertise of People with Lived and Living Experience on the Integration of Mental Health and Substance Use Health Services in Canada
– The report Toward Substance Use Health and Mental Health Service Integration: Findings from a Scoping Review
– The report Cannabis, Mental Health and Substance Use Health Summary Report
