Hoarding Disorder is a mental illness that effects a person’s health, safety and ability to maintain stable housing. The person living with the disorder and their family are touched. Housing managers, friends, neighbors and care providers want to know how best to support the person. Community support providers, charged with providing personal and community health and safety, need information on how to best work with the person managing hoarding disorder. This involves maintaining their dignity and connecting them to the resources they may need for their mental health plus tactical help for addressing immediate safety and health concerns.
NAMI Minnesota is the lead organizer collaborating with the Older Adults Mental Health Roundtable and the Minnesota Hoarding Task Force.
