This face-to-face workshop will equip participants with the foundational knowledge and skills to provide safe and appropriate care to patients with mental health presentations in non-mental health-specific environments. Legal considerations that can impact the care and treatment of patients within non-mental health settings will be explored, assisting with the understanding of trauma-informed care. Lived experiences and case studies will be used to develop decision-making skills in managing patients with mental health-related behaviours and conditions.
