SUPPORTING SOMEONE WITH AN ALCOHOL DEPENDENCY AND CO-EXISTING MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES

My wishlist

It’s getting ever closer to that time of year where a lot of us start thinking about what we want for Christmas. For many of us, the disruption and challenges of 2020 and Covid-19 have put this into perspective and our “letters to Santa” are more likely to include “time with my loved ones” at the top of the list rather than the latest kitchen gadget, slippers or bath bombs (still very much in my top 5, though, if you’re listening Mum…).

My Wishlist for the Alcohol and Mental Health Sectors

Please can we have clear guidance and clear lines of responsibility for people’s care for those who experience co-existing mental health and alcohol issues, regardless of whether they have been given an official “Dual Diagnosis”?

My Wishlist for People Affected by Someone Else’s Alcohol Use

Please remember to take the time to just listen.
