Relationships are a significant part of our well-being, and intimate relationships are no different. Relationships can enhance healing and growth, but they can also contribute to conflict or problems. A mental health or substance use challenge adds another dimension. One partner is often the primary caregiver when the other experiences health challenges, which may also affect the relationship. These dynamics are complicated—and they may not receive the attention they deserve in mental health care. This issue, however, demonstrates that with the right supports, relationships can flourish regardless of mental health or substance use challenges.
