DescriptionHoarding disorder is now recognised as a distinct mental illness that requires a professional response. However, housing teams often struggle to understand different forms of mental illness and how to respond to associated behaviours.
Learning Outcomes/objectivesThis workshop will start by increasing your understanding of mental illness, the effect on housing provision and the practical tools and response options available to the housing professional. It will then explore hoarding disorder specifically; looking at how hoarding develops and building your understanding of how hoarders think and feel about their possessions. You will consider the best ways to support those with a hoarding disorder and the relevant legislation that shapes your obligations and response as a housing provider.
Who should attend
The course is an open course to all organisations and individuals involved in Housing and interested in hoarding.
Frontline housing staff and health workers, their managers and other service providers supporting tenants with hoarding disorder and other forms of mental illness.
