Who is the training for?

For students experiencing depression, anxiety, homesickness or low self-esteem, that first conversation can make all the difference – and it’s often non-specialist staff such as personal tutors, porters and cleaning staff who first notice that a student may be in distress.
CWMT has developed an online learning resource for university staff, providing evidence-based information and training modules on a range of mental health issues. The aim is to help non-specialist staff feel more confident to spot and respond to signs of distress amongst students.
"Thank you so much for providing us with a free, user friendly, high calibre resource. One that we can share with staff, especially when providing workshops for supporting students in distress or as a stand alone training course."
You can access the e-learning and find out more here.
We also have a teaching pack that supports the University e-learning. It is split into six sessions and is available to download below:
