Event Details

This course will give you the confidence to intervene with, and properly refer people who you think may have a mental illness and are sleeping rough.

This course will give you the practical skills needed to help clients improve self awareness, build motivation and self-esteem, break free from unhelpful behavioural patterns, and take responsibility for their actions and choices.

A mixture of training methods is used on this course. You will explore typical problems faced by professionals that work with vulnerable people, such as the tendency to attribute “blame” on to others and resistance to pro-activity. The blend of approaches is designed to ensure that you will gain insights that are of immediate, practical use in your everyday working life.

This course will enable participants to use relevant legislation and procedures to consider whether to intervene with people sleeping rough where there are concerns that they may have a mental illness. The course expands on material available in the Mental Health Service Interventions for Rough Sleepers Toolkit and Guidance.

Who is this for?

Those involved in voluntary sector support services for people sleeping rough such as outreach workers, day centre workers, and hostel workers. As well as Local Authorities involved in annual counts and estimates. It will be of particular relevance to workers who refer service users to statutory mental health services as part of their role.

What will you learn?

On completion of this course you will:

  • Be able to refer appropriately to the principles and relevant sections of the Mental Health Act 1983 (MHA) when making a referral to statutory services, specifically in the use of the Mental Health screening tool
  • Be able to refer appropriately to relevant sections of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (MCA) when making a referral to statutory services, specifically in the use of the Mental Capacity screening tool
  • Be able to make an assessment of capacity (S3 MCA) using the Mental Capacity Act 2005
  • Have considered options for contributing to the care plan once someone has been admitted to a psychiatric inpatient unit
  • Have considered how the Safeguarding procedures, as defined by the Care Act 2014, may be relevant to a person who is sleeping rough.
  • Be able to make an appropriate intervention with a person sleeping rough where they are at immediate risk of significant harm or death.
