Drugs, alcohol & mental health

  • There are many reasons why you might use drugs and alcohol.
  • Some people use them to try and deal with their symptoms of their mental illness. This is called ‘self-medication’.
  • Drugs and alcohol can make the symptoms of your mental illness worse.
  • Some drugs may make it more likely for you to get a mental illness, and they may make it harder to treat.
  • Mental health, and drug and alcohol services should work together to give you the support you need.
  • If you have any problems getting help, you could make a complaint.
