Did you know that over fifty percent of people diagnosed with a severe mental illness, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, will meet criteria for a substance use disorder in their lifetime?

 

This dual disorder often starts during youth and leads to significant societal costs, including lower employability rates, more hospitalizations, and higher risk of homelessness and of suicide attempts when compared to those with a serious mental illness without substance misuse. 💸

 

Moreover, many individuals presenting with comorbid disorders also present with other psychological difficulties as well, such as personality disorders or anxiety and depression, also known as complex comorbid disorders.

 

Transdiagnostic treatments that focus on core difficulties found in people with dual disorders, or complex dual disorders, such as emotional regulation, are in dire need.

 

Emotional regulation skills can help reduce distress related to psychotic symptoms and maintain abstinence in substance use disorders.

 

New technologies in the field of communications have developed considerably over the past decade and have the potential to improve access to such treatments, a major problem in many health care settings.📱

 

As such, this paper aims at:

1) Presenting core difficulties present in many individuals with dual disorders. ✅

 

2) Reviewing the scientific literature pertaining to the use of mobile applications in mental health and addictions. ✅

 

3) Presenting the development and potential of a new application for emotional regulation for people with dual disorders.✅

For more information on the subject, check out our new scientific article published in the prestigious scientific journal Frontiers in Psychiatry. 📚

Congratulations to the two authors of our team: Antoine Pennou and Tania Lecomte 👏🏻
