Who We Are

Patnerring to help people with complex mental health & addiction recovery needs to get the support they need & deserve!

From my experience, if someone with both mental health and addiction issues can find the right support and develop the right support networks, it can make all of the difference to a person’s chances of developing a healthy drug & alcohol-free life.

Personally, I know this is true because I’ve experienced it and I’ve seen it happen in other people’s lives.

But, I’ve also seen other people with a dual diagnosis get pushed from pillar to post or never manage to get to the point where they’re willing to do something about their addiction issue because to some degree, they still believe that it’s working or that they couldn’t cope without it.

This needn’t be the case though!

My name’s Jon and I have a dual diagnosis of alcoholism & schizophrenia and I’m one of the lucky ones today although I think everyone who knows me knows that I’ve had my struggles along the way…

I aim to develop a comprehensive resources for 3 main groups:

  1. Those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorders.
  2. Carers, families, & friends of those who suffer with co-occurring disorders.
  3. Addiction & Mental Health Professionals who need more information about free dual diagnosis resources and support groups.

In an ideal world, I’d also set up support groups specifically for families and carers of people with co-occurring and mental health issues, but that is out of my comfort zone of computing & coffee, so if anyone else feels like taking up that challenge, then we’d happily help to promote your organisation.

We are also seeking to create connections with addiction and mental health-related organisations so feel free to get in touch using the contact form on our contact us page.

Our Approach

We want to create a complex mental health & addiction recovery resource organisation that empowers those with co-occurring disorders, services, & carers...

The Dual Diagnosis Hub will be set up and launched over the next two years to provide & signpost information, advice and support for those with co-occurring mental health and addiction issues.

It’s going to be piloted in Hampshire in the United Kingdom before it is officially launched across the whole of the country.

This project will be developed in stages and initially we aim to provide information about the different mental health conditions that people can come into recovery with, tools that we’ve found useful in dual recovery, and we will sign-post local & national organisations that can provide additional support to those with complex mental health needs.

We are currently looking for organisations that are interested in creating partnerships for the benefit of both those with complex needs and those who support them.

If you run an organisation that provides information, advice, or support for those with severe mental health problems, those who care for them, or organisations that work with addicts then please feel free to contact us and we’d love to talk with you about developing effective relationships with your organisation.
