Public Health Nuisances:
New Ways to Address an Old Problem
The Local Public Health Association recently updated the Statewide Public Health Nuisance Handbook, originally a product of the Minnesota Department of Health and the State Community Health Services Advisory Committee (SCHSAC). This session features a toolkit to address questions about legal authority, health department responsibility and different challenges in urban, suburban, and rural counties. Learn strategies to collaborate with other government agencies and healthcare providers. See how hoarding, in particular, benefits from a public health approach to address underlying mental and behavioral health issues, rather than a strictly law enforcement approach.
