Student mental health and wellbeing

online staff training

Welcome to the interactive online training session for student mental health and wellbeing.

The aim of this training is to assist you, as well as the students you support, by giving you the confidence to know what to do and where to go when confronted by students in distress. It will help you be more effective in dealing with difficult situations, preserving time and your own wellbeing in the long run. 

The key areas it covers are helping you identify when a student might need support, knowing how best to listen and respond to a student, as well as how to arrange support and get urgent help in a serious situation. 

This training is an important part of our school wide approach to support outlined in Student Mental Health and Wellbeing Framework. By equipping all staff with basic skills and knowledge, this will have a real impact on student wellbeing and therefore, overall positive outcomes during their time at LSE.

The whole training should take about 30 minutes. There are interactive elements throughout.
