‘Dual Diagnosis’ or ‘Comorbity’ are terms used when a person is diagnosed with one or more conditions. When referring to these terms in relation to people who use drugs, it means that the person is using a substance (s) and also experiences a mental health issue.

The relationship between substance use and mental health is complex and can mean additional difficulties for both the person and their families. These issues may be worsened by external stresses during periods of crisis, making the COVID-19 outbreak an even more difficult time.

See our information about dual diagnosis and advice for looking after your mental health during the COVID-19 outbreak.
