Many people who struggle with mental illness also struggle with an addiction. This webinar explores co-occurring disorders as a spectrum of experience, and looks specifically at the relationship between addictions and mental illness. The role that trauma can play in co-occurring disorders is also reviewed. Understanding the relationship between addictions and mental illness is key for caregivers to assist in recovery.
