OVERVIEW View Seminar Agenda
In any given year, one in four adults will experience at least one mental health disorder. This seminar is for all those involved in debt management and recovery in the public, private and third sectors. It will explain how the banks and other lenders are supporting debtors who may be experiencing mental health issues; how the banking regulations can assist in safe guarding a creditor's reputation and in the long term, increase recovery rates.
Mental health problems can cause severe debt, and severe debt can cause mental health problems. Debt isn’t just a financial problem, it causes relationships to break up, people to lose their homes and families to break down. Banks have introduced specific processes acknowledging the particular challenges faced by those battling both debt and mental health issues. How can the public and third sectors benefit from following similar processes to the banks, which ultimately help the consumer and can increase the chances of recovery?
This seminar will take us through the good practice processes employed by lenders when dealing with customers in debt who have mental health issues and will look at case studies to help put the process in context.
