Partnership for a Drug Free Canada (PDFC)


Mental illness can have a far reaching impact. It is important to recognize that a person may have a mental illness as well as substance use disorder and that accessing suitable treatment for concurrent disorders is a major challenge for those who need it.


The goal of  “Partnership for a Drug Free Canada” Chapter at York University is to increase awareness about concurrent disorders and the unique challenges in recognizing, diagnosing and treating them in addition to acknowledging the plethora of problems faced by those suffering from them. We hope that these efforts will one day result in more appropriate responses and support.
