Identifying Mental Health Difficulties 2

Prerequisite: None.

Target audience: All members of staff.

Aims: In certain situations it may be difficult to establish whether or not the behaviour of the person is connected to a mental health issue, or to some other issue. The focus of the session will be on examining the signs and indicators of certain mental health conditions so that staff will be more confident in identifying what is going on for the person involved.

The session will look at:

- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD);

- Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCD);

- Eating Disorders;

- Personality Disorders.

The session will also look at how these conditions can affect the everyday life of the person experiencing these symptoms - either in their studies or in their working lives. We will also examine helpful and unhelpful strategies in interactions with the individuals.

Session duration: 1.5 hours.
