Guidance for housing and homelessness teams on referrals to, and support from, statutory mental health services; and guidance for mental health professionals on homelessness services and support.
Working with Mental Health Services
When you support someone in distress, or with a mental health problem, what can you do? This guidance aims to increase the confidence and knowledge of teams who have concerns about the mental health of people they support. It describes the work of different statutory services and explains how to make referrals, outlining the factors involved in decision-making and support, as well as how to build better partnerships between homelessness and mental health teams.
This guidance is written by mental health professionals from EASL with input from the Mental Health Interventions and Rough Sleepers Steering Group, hosted by Pathway.
