This resource considers practice issues for service providers working with young people with a dual diagnosis.

You can now download the BUDDYS Youth Dual Diagnosis Resource Guide 2015 here - BUDDYS Resource. 

This guide covers key practice areas for supporting young people who have, or may be at risk of, developing a dual diagnosis - that is, a co-occurring AOD problem and a mental illness, which can range in severity from mild to severe.

Young people’ generally refers to the 16-25 age group, although this guide may also be useful for young people that fall outside of this age bracket.
