Concurrent Disorders (Mental Health and Substance Use):

Our Concurrent Disorders Program provides training and advice for other services in Peel Region that help teenagers and young adults who have mental health difficulties and use drugs or alcohol.

 

We can also help your teenager if he or she has mental health difficulties and uses drugs or alcohol.

Who is eligible to use this program?
This program helps workers from child and youth mental health services, schools, hospitals, housing services, and other community services for teenagers and young adults who live in Peel Region.

 

We may also be able to help your teenager or young adult if he or she:

  • is up to 24 years of age,
  • lives in Peel Region, and
  • has mental health problems and uses drugs or alcohol.

 

What do we do?
We train community workers who help teenagers and young adults. We share our knowledge and research about the best ways to help teenagers and young adults who have mental health difficulties and use drugs or alcohol.
 

We also help teenagers and young adults in two ways.

  • We meet with the youth and their service provider from another community service to help plan their treatment.
  • We provide groups called First Contact for teenagers who have mental health problems and use drugs or alcohol. These groups help teenagers:
    • be more aware of their use of drugs and/or alcohol,
    • understand how using drugs and/or alcohol affects them, and
    • develop a plan for replacing their use of drugs and/or alcohol with healthier choices.

 

You can find out about our First Contact Group by clicking on this Publications page and looking at our Groups brochures.

 

How can you access this program?
Schools, hospitals, housing services, and other community services that work with teenagers and young adults can call 905-795-3500 and ask for the Clinical Coordinator, Concurrent Disorders Program.

 

Teenagers, young adults and families can call Mental Health Services for Children and Youth (Centralized Intake) at 905-451-4655 to find out if this service can help them.
