PATH recently did a short survey with landlords and agents who regularly take people from PATH as tenants. They have had feedback that landlords and agents might like training around dealing with tenants (including in shared houses) who have poor mental health.
Poor mental health usually has its roots in trauma. The Trauma Informed Plymouth Network would be happy to offer a free 60 minute Introduction to Trauma course which would cover themes like:
What is trauma
How common is trauma
Signs and symptoms of trauma for individuals and communities
Stress responses to trauma – seeing behaviour as communication
Why an understanding of trauma is important
Responding to trauma with a trauma-informed approach
