A study of provider perceptions of individuals with dual disorders

Journal of Mental Health Administration
R T PuliceL L McCormick


Human service workers devote a great deal of time in preparing to serve clients. The majority of this preparation is focused in one direction, with exposure to a limited type of client. The growing population of individuals with dual disorders of mental illness and substance abuse challenges this tradition in training, in that these clients pose unique, multiple, and overlapping characteristics, symptomatology, and behaviors requiring a synthesis of training approaches. Based on survey data collected in a county in New York State, this study discusses how providers from various agencies view individuals with dual disorders and proposes coordination and training efforts that can be designed to respond to providers' treatment concerns.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
