Local authorities

Mental health training courses

Mental health issues are common in people seeking help from local authorities. However, surveys show that housing staff, safeguarding boards, social workers, and others offering these services have a variable knowledge base around mental disorders and often feel a lack of confidence in their skills to deal with problems that arise. Expectations from service users, their families, and a variety of regulators mean this needs to be addressed better. Maudsley Learning understands the issues and takes a tailored approach to helping you and your organisation deal with the challenge, whether you work in a healthcare organisation or a body that interfaces with healthcare services. All our courses are delivered by a highly-skilled clinical teaching faculty.
