This session will deliver practical advice and good practice on:

– How common symptoms of mental health problems can make engaging with services and debt advice a challenge
– The steps services can take to ensure they are accessible to people experiencing mental health problems
– The benefits of co-operation between local services in meeting the needs of vulnerable customers, including those with mental health problems
This webinar is aimed at local health and social care staff, frontline public-sector staff (housing, employment and benefits), staff in work and pensions’ services coordinating action with local authorities and other government departments, community leaders and groups, volunteers, and supervisors and managers.
