Mental Health Families and Friends Tasmania have recently completed a literature review of young families and friends who have lived and or living experience of supporting someone living with alcohol and other drug (AOD) use or co-occurring AOD use and mental ill health, regarding their needs and experiences and peer support.
The review probes into the uniqueness of their role compared to adult support persons and the invisibility of young support people, which means we are without reliable and important data that informs us of the prevalence, experiences, neeeds, and types of support that they require.
We welcome you to read the review (below) and share your thoughts with us by emailing Rahnee at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 6228 7448.
