In preparation for the new academic year this training session will

- Discuss how to support students with mental health issues or students in distress; including information on the services available to UAL students; and how and when to refer.
- Explore role related responsibilities in working with students with mental health issues. We will use activities and discussion to explore managing professional boundaries and confidentiality.
The workshop is recommended for all staff but especially those in student facing roles. It also acts as a refresher for colleagues that have completed it in the past as it will provide the most up to date information.
