The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust have developed a short e-learning package which aims to give non-specialist staff the skills and confidence to provide initial support to students who may be struggling with mental health issues.
The training is divided into six 20 minute modules and we would recommend these to members of staff who want to increase their skills in this area. The modules cover the following:
- Signs to look out for
- Key helping skills
- Knowing who else to involve
- Supporting students at risk or in crisis
To access the e-learning package visit the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust.
Please do note that as this training is not specific to York St John University there may be slightly different advice that we would offer depending on the support options both within the university and across York so do also feel free to contact us in the Wellbeing Team for further advice and support. Please also see our webpages which detail how students access Wellbeing support and what is available here at York St John.
