Sector Capacity Building

WANADA's Sector Capacity Building Project supports WA's alcohol and other drug agencies to improve services and to develop their capacity to work with people who have complex needs.

The project is funded by the Australian Government's Department of Health through the Substance Misuse Service Delivery Grants Fund.

WANADA's support includes:

  • Quality Improvement Support - Supporting agencies to achieve certification against the new Standard on Culturally Secure Practice (Alcohol and other Drug Sector)
  • DDCAT Support - Supporting DoH-funded alcohol and other drug agencies in WA to use the Dual Diagnosis Capability in Addiction Tool (DDCAT) to assess their capacity to work with people who have comorbid substance use and mental health concerns.
  • Student Placements - Supporting university students from allied health fields to complete placements in the alcohol and other drug sector.
  • Green Book Directory of Alcohol and other Drug and Mental Health Services in WA (www.greenbook.org.au) - WANADA, in partnership with the WA Association for Mental Health, has developed a directory of AOD and mental health services that builds on our print resource. The Green Book is available as a dedicated online directory and mobile app (jointly funded by the WA Drug and Alcohol Office and the WA Mental Health Commission).
The project follows on from the Improved Services Initiative (ISI), which supported non-government alcohol and other drug agencies to build their capacity to work with people who have both substance use and mental health issues.

Resources developed as part of the ISI Initiative include:
