Event description
This practice-based course looks in depth at an issue that is commonly encountered by mental health practitioners and social workers and which has no easy answers. It gives an opportunity to review the relevance of the Mental Health Act & Mental Capacity Act, the Care Act 2014 and the involvement of environmental health, and to discuss local issues. The standard charge for this course is £80 per day. Please refer to our Course Charges on the Home page for information on discounts and exemptions
