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 substance 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.
CAN aims to identify, engage with and learn from community groups, consumers and service providers concerned about the needs of both young and older people affected by mental health and substance use problems. The project will attempt to identify how these people can be offered easier access to the early intervention, treatment and support for comorbidity issues that they need. This will include Aboriginal and refugee/migrant groups living in the area.
The CAN project team includes:
