Would your office staff find this useful? As they are often the first ‘port of call’ for adults needing support.
Our wonderful TA’s are often the ones supporting the mental health of students. Help your TA’s to understand what is going on and what certain behaviours mean. Why not book all of your TA’s on and they can all hear the same message in one go? We ran this course last year and the evaluations were so overwhelmingly positive that we had to repeat it so more TA’s could attend.
