e-learning for college and university staff

White curve

Would you like to feel more confident to support students in distress?

The Trust has developed an online learning resource for college and 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.

Who is the training for?

All academic and support staff, including:

  • Caterers
  • Security staff
  • Accommodation staff
  • Careers advisors
  • Chaplains
  • Personal tutors
  • Porters
  • Cleaners
  • Librarians
  • Registry staff


What does the e-learning include?

Being able to support students at an early stage helps to normalise common feelings of anxiety and worry, before they may escalate to needing more specialist help.

For students experiencing depression that first conversation can make all the difference.

The package consists of six easy-to-follow 20-minute sessions, including:

• Signs to look out for.
• Key helping skills.
• Knowing who else to involve and when.

The guidance gives suggestions for the facilitator on how to maximise the learning potential of this training.
