Increasing numbers of people are reporting mental health distress and this can pose significant additional challenges for professionals, from workers in homeless hostels and supported accommodation, to health and signposting services, social services and the police. Recognising signs of mental health problems is the first challenge, and feeling confident in responding appropriately is the second. But how does a professional first coming into contact with a service user, often under pressured circumstances, recognise this? Especially when the individual may also have other difficulties such as drug and alcohol problems, and may not want to access help.
