Many systemic barriers and silos make it difficult for people with substance use and mental health problems to access the care they need. In this lecture, Corace will discuss her work developing and evaluating innovative care models to reduce barriers and improve mental health and substance use outcomes. She will highlight the important role of evidence-based psychological therapies in order to enhance the delivery of care. Corace will discuss how collaborative partnerships, including engaging people with lived experience, are crucial to driving system change.
