Mental Hlth: Crises/Difficult Situations

Prerequisite: None.

Aims: The majority of people who experience significant difficulties with their mental health will manage their conditions, day by day, in a way which has little impact on others around them in the University community.

This session will focus on the following:

- Dealing with people expressing suicidal thoughts;

- Self-harming behaviours;

- Involving other Agencies;

- The legal position

- Dealing with a mental health crisis on Campus;

- Confidentiality.

Session duration: 1.5 hours.
