About this course

This interactive course is tailored to increase awareness of mental health issues, specifically guiding supervisors in supporting struggling students at university.

Addressing concerns such as assignment completion, enhancing the work environment, and facilitating the return to study after an absence, the course aims to reduce discrimination and stigma associated with mental health.

Created in collaboration with Liverpool University, the online program provides supervisors with a comprehensive understanding of stress factors, insights into recognising signs of poor mental health, practical steps to assist postgraduate researchers (PGRs), and guidelines for managing crisis situations.
