New Ways to Address an Old Problem: Public Health Nuisances (PDF: 144KB / 1 page)

This fall, the Local Public Health Association will release an updated, online Statewide Public Health Nuisance Handbook, originally a product of MDH and the State Community Health Services Advisory Committee (SCHSAC). This session describes the online toolkit, and features case studies of nuisances in urban, suburban, and rural communities, including a discussion of health department responsibility and legal authority. Participants will learn strategies to collaborate with other government agencies and healthcare providers, and see how hoarding benefits from a public health team approach to address mental and behavioral health issues, rather than a strictly law enforcement approach.
