Free workshop for agency staff – Assisting Clients in Financial Distress.

FREE Workshop for Agency Staff in Yeppoon.

Assisting your Clients who are in Financial Distress.

When – 3.30 pm – 4.15pm. Thursday 2nd June

Where – Room C, the Community Centre, 80 John St, Yeppoon

Financial difficulties often have a negative impact on mental health and addressing financial problems early can reduce this impact. Even clients who meet their repayments may still be experiencing financial difficulties and distress. It would be useful to lessen this stress before it’s a major issue.

We will cover

  • Discussing the situation and questions to ask
  • Respecting the clients’ values
  • What are some of the possible options available
  • Relevant referral pathways.

Community Education Session provided by Qualified Financial Counsellor
