Professional/Non-Profit Organizations

The majority of professional and non-profit organizations that contribute to the COD field have either a mental health or a substance abuse orientation; however, there are a few groups that organizationally deal with co-occurring issues.

This electronic resource guide taps into the health, education, social services, and juvenile justice literature to present current, high-quality resources on the topic. The knowledge path was produced by the MCH Library to complement the knowledge path, Healthy Social and Emotional Development in Children and Adolescents. The new path identifies tools for staying abreast of developments in mental health care and for conducting further research.
