For students experiencing depression, anxiety, homesickness or low self-esteem, that first conversation can make all the difference.

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 a first line of support to students who may have mental health issues.

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
  • Supporting students at risk or in crisis
