Improving management of comorbid substance use and mental illness with an integrated and stepped care (ISC) approach

The Multi-modal Translation Intervention Package (MTP) has been designed to train counsellors and aid implementation of integrated stepped care (ISC) in the treatment of comorbidity in Local Health Districts (LHDs) of NSW. Funded by the NSW Health Translational Research Grants Scheme, this project is a translational formative evaluation that will firstly, evaluate the impact of the MTP to (a) increase proficiency and uptake of ISC; (b) enhance clinician knowledge and attitudes; (c) improve substance use and mental health outcomes. Secondly, it will examine barriers and facilitators of integrated stepped care implementation. Thirdly, it will deliver the MTP resources and sustainability recommendations to NSW Health for future rollout. Ultimately, the project will promote the identification, assessment and clinical management of comorbidity within the drug and alcohol services of NSW LHDs.
