Communities are working to address the complex issues presented by hoarding. Task forces, case management programs, and community mental health services often provide hoarding interventions and resources. Panelists from various disciplines, hoarding intervention models, and geographic regions will share their experiences as members of community based hoarding intervention efforts. Topics include challenges, successes, and strategies to engage an array of services. Special attention will be focused on engaging non-voluntary clients and creative provision of services.
