Webinar hosted by Public Health England | Thurs 12 Nov 2020 | 11am-12 noon
A webinar on supporting the mental health and wellbeing of people who are or might experience economic problems during and after the Covid-19 pandemic.
This webinar will focus on supporting the mental health and wellbeing of groups of people who are likely, or currently experiencing, debt and money problems as a result of the economic impact of the coronavirus outbreak in England.
A recent report published by the Money and Mental Health Policy Institute highlighted people with common mental disorders such as anxiety or depression receive annual average incomes of £8,400 less than people without mental health problems.
This session will deliver practical advice and good practice on:
- Understanding how mental health problems and financial difficulties are linked
- 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
Who should attend?
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.
