Domestic staff mental health welfare training | Student Welfare and Support Services | Thursday, 07. November 2019

The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust have devised and created a 6 session e-learning pack for frontline university staff who deal with students in a non-formal setting. The aim of the pack is to help staff feel more confident and aware in relation to students' mental health, and how they can help and signpost students to resources and systems within the university.
This training goes alongside the pack, and is a general introduction to ‘What is mental health’? It aims to help participants draw upon their own experiences of situations with students, and check out approaches and resources available to support staff in their work.
This is a 2 hour training session delivered by Jackie Williams, a very experienced counsellor, academic and trainer.
The session is aimed at people working as domestic staff in colleges, particularly managers of domestic staff, cleaners and scouts.
The session will give a brief overview of some of the common mental health problems experienced by students, what are the warning signs for these and risk factors, with some practical suggestions of what you can do in your role to help these students in the context of your work.
