The aim of this training is to help advocates understand what they need to think about when they work with people who have a culturally diverse ethnic background.
There are many differences people have and we will help you to find better ways of working with people who need help to work within the system and bring them and the system closer together to deliver better outcomes for them and even the professionals involved with them.
This training is aimed developing the approach to working with people from culturally diverse backgrounds.
While some of the training is based on providing an understanding of the Equality Act and Equality duty placed on organisations we will look at some cultural concepts and what the best approach would be to achieve a better way of working with people from different cultures.
The Introduction to the Mental Health Act provides a starting point to understanding the law around sectioning and the way services use the act.
It also looks at what the rights of the person who has been sectioned and what their rights are when involved within the Mental Health Act.
This will include the right to appeal hospital detention, the different sections under part 2 of the act, role of the nearest relative, options of discharge and aftercare to the community including CTO (Community Treatment Orders) and how the Mental Health Act Code of Practice works with the Mental Health Act.
