Welcome to a special issue of Mental Health Update about dual diagnosis - mental illness with substance use.
NEXUS Dual Diagnosis Consultation Service: I would like to thank Simon Kroes and Kevan Myers from NEXUS for their assistance. Located at St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne, NEXUS is a component of the Victorian Dual Diagnosis Initiative (VDDI). Their role is to enhance dual diagnosis capability across the AOD (Alcohol and Other Drug) and MH (Mental Health) sectors. NEXUS supports integrated AOD and MH treatment through service development, education and clinical leadership. NEXUS is not a direct clinical service provider.
