Comorbidity action in the north (CAN) project

 

Overview

The Comorbidity action in the north (CAN) project aims to improve services and pathways to care for people aged 12 years and over who have both mental health and alcohol and other drug use problems. The project is based in the northern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia, and is supported by a Linkage Project Grant from the Australian Research Council.

This will include Aboriginal and refugee/migrant groups living in the area.
