Introduction to Mental Health and ASB Casework - new one day training course announced

RESOLVE ASB are delighted to invite you to attend our forthcoming Introduction to Mental Health and ASB Casework training course. 

In recent years Housing and ASB practitioners have reported an increase in Mental Health issues being a significant contributing factor in ASB casework. There are more cases than ever before, where Mental Health is being reported as a causal factor in ASB related incidents and equally more cases of victims and witnesses who state that their mental health is suffering because of ASB related incidents. 

Generally, Housing Providers, Police and Community Safety teams have a wide experience of resolving ASB cases successfully across all tenures, and taking legal action where necessary. However, where Mental Health is seen as the main contributing factor, many agencies, including housing and their partners, continue to face difficulties in responding effectively to these types of cases. 

This course is designed to build confidence and competence in front line staff, including Housing and ASB Practitioners, Mental Health support workers, and those supporting vulnerable adults , front line Police Officers and PCSO’s, as well as Community Safety Teams. 

The training course will improve knowledge and understanding of mental health in the context of ASB casework and clarify the myths surrounding the Mental Capacity Act. 

The course is CPD accredited and on completion students will be awarded 7 hours of CPD.

The course will be delivered at the following locations:-
