Adviser training:

The session provides guidance to help staff manage interactions with students who are concerned about their mental health. It highlights things to be mindful of when communicating with distressed students, such as first impressions and boundaries.

It includes suggestions of how staff members can ensure that they look after themselves and obtain appropriate support after coming into contact with students in distress.
