Substance use vs. Comorbidity: Disparities and Stigma
Daniel Wallace
Due to the significant impact that drugs often have in society, substance use is one of the grand challenges today. Substance use is a major health risk that impacts in all ages, causing further social and economic strain. In parallel, it is interesting to assess correlating factors surrounding comorbid mental health issues. Curiosity has raised questions surrounding the gaps faced within both populations. What are the leading causes that continues to promote disparities and hinder access to substance use or those with comorbid mental health issues? Because both substance use and mental health issues have made lasting impression on society, exploring the gaps within treatment and accessibility can explain the causes of disparities. This presentation aims to uncover the root of the issue that promotes disparities and creates barriers against accessing to substance use treatment, while proposing solutions to the issue.
