Training sessions delivered by Mental Health Advisors
Our team are always happy support academic staff to maximise their effectiveness in working with students on an individual basis or through provision of training.
You may be interested in 'Mental Health Awareness for Staff Dealing with Students', which runs on a regular basis throughout the academic year. Please check i-Trent for upcoming dates and to book your place.
We actively encourage staff to refer students to our no prior appointment drop-in session.
Please also feel free to accompany your student to the drop-in if you feel this would make it more accessible for them.
Student Support Meetings
If you are calling a stage 3 meeting related to a student’s mental health, please ensure we are invited - we make it a priory to attend these meetings.
In order that we can attend the meetings with the most up to date information, ideally we need to see the student in the week leading up to the meeting (if we have not already seen them recently). Please bare this in mind when arranging the meetings. Where we are unable to attend the meeting and the student is known to us, we will submit a report in advance.
Mental Health Advisors do not routinely attend Stage 2 meetings however, please do alert us that they are happening so we can log them on the student record and make a case-by-case decision.
When arranging meetings, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If we see or hear about a student who appears to be struggling with their mental health and we assess them to be at risk or their mental health is having an impact on their academic work, we will contact you to request a meeting.
Our role within Student Support meetings is to share information, give a professional mental health perspective and be part of the discussion and decision-making process.
