People who hoard struggle to discard their possessions, which often leads to anxiety, depression, interpersonal difficulties and even problems with personal health and safety.
This webinar will outline our current understanding of hoarding behaviour, the impact on mental health hoarding can have, and how health professionals can support people who hoard to make the changes they want to see in their lives.
Our panel will include a loved-one of someone who hoards, a clinical psychologist experienced in treating hoarding disorder and a hoarding researcher.
The webinar series examines some of the online mental health treatment programs that GPs need to know about, focusing on evidence-based programs that have been developed in Australia. The evidence around the efficacy and usefulness of different programs will be discussed along with practical aspects of using the programs.
GPs and GP registrars, psychologists and allied mental health practitioners, in fact any health professional with an interest in improving outcomes for patients with mental health conditions.
