Researchers interviewed 29 people living with concurrent mental health and substance use issues to identify what obstacles they faced in accessing food. Over one-third of respondents were homeless or staying with family. Common barriers to access included lack of income, inflexible food service schedules, and a lack of food resources outside of the downtown core. In addition, respondents were not primarily concerned with food and nutrition when using drugs/alcohol or looking for shelter. Researchers noted that a surprisingly small number of service agencies knew what the term “concurrent disorder” meant. Researchers developed several recommendations for providing food services specifically for people with concurrent mental health and substance use issues including a pilot service project.
