Families that have alcohol and mental health problems: a template for partnership working


The National Health Service Executive through the Department of Health s64 grant scheme funded this research and development project.

We thank John Allcock and colleagues at the Department of Health for commissioning this project. We give special thanks to the staff of the many organisations who generously donated their time and expertise but who must remain anonymous.

We gratefully acknowledge the support provided by all the members of the advisory group, chaired by David Joannides on behalf of the Association of Directors of Social Services. The views expressed in this report are those of the practice development team and not necessarily any of the advisory group members.

We would like to thank the following organisations, and their local partners, for permission to cite their work in this document. The agencies noted usually represent a consortium of local effort between health, housing and nonstatutory agencies and demonstrates the range of collaborative partnerships that we have seen.
