Student mental health e-learning for university / college staff

free e-learning package for all university / college staff from the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust is now available. For students in distress, the first point of contact is often with non-specialist university/ college staff such as porters, domestic staff, bar staff, security, academic tutors or maintenance staff. The first conversation students have with a member of staff like this can be vital – in ensuring they receive a warm, empathic and understanding response to help them immediately, and that they are then signposted, if necessary, to receive help from a mental health specialist.

Developed by the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, this new e-learning package is designed to give non-specialist staff the skills, knowledge and confidence to offer this first line of support. Introduced by well-known TV presenter Alexander Armstrong, 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 supporting students at risk or in crisis.


Responsible Bystander Workshop

Bystander intervention is a vital component in tackling bullying and harassment, as we all have a part to play in creating our workplace culture.  Through our everyday interactions we are challenging or enforcing social norms, we are leading by example and role modelling behaviour.  The Responsible Bystander workshop aims to empower you with the confidence and tools to challenges problematic behaviour in a safe, respectful and productive way before it escalates to bullying and harassment.
