Coexisting Problems refers to the presence of both Mental Health and Substance Use problems. For a lot of young people the use of substances is in part to help cope and manage other problems they are experiencing (e.g. difficult thoughts, feelings). For some, their substance use has led to other problems with their wellbeing (e.g. low mood, anxiety).
SORTED, as a service, is part of a wider service known as MICAMHS (Maternal Infant Child Adolescent Mental Health Service), and as such we are able to support young people with coexisting problems. Most of the time this still only means meeting with your SORTED worker but there are options you can be provided with to meet with others within the wider MICAMHS team (e.g. Psychologist) if this would be helpful, and only if you are willing.
