Training sessions delivered by Mental Health Advisors
Our team are always happy to 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 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.
If you are calling a Serious or Continuing concerns meeting or a Return to Study meeting where there are concerns about a students mental health then please ensure we are invited – we make it a priority to attend these meetings.
Support to Study meetings are not routinely attended however, please alert us that they are happening so we can log them on the student record and make a case-by-case decision.
Our role in these meetings is to share information, give a professional mental health perspective and be part of the discussion and decision-making process.
