SNT Trust Administration For The Mentally Ill Beneficiary

About the Course

Administering an SNT when a beneficiary has a mental illness is one of the most challenging tasks a professional will undertake. The beneficiary may not cooperate, can be verbally abusive, or even be a danger to themselves or others. Managing a SNT with this beneficiary requires special training, additional skills, a thick skin, and a great deal of patience. This program will review your intake process in agreeing to take on a case, creating a team to serve the client’s needs, and summarize other important aspects of administration including finding housing, obtaining public benefits, serving as payee, and providing advocacy. This program is designed so the professional can learn the tools to serve this population by using their professional skills and resources.
