Training for staff

Online resources

We are developing some online training resources to help all staff to support students, which you will be able to find on the Online Resources page. Our first resource looks at identifying and responding to students in a mental health crisis.

The Stepped Care Model helps match the support we offer at the University of Manchester to the student's need. You can access our interactive presentation on the Stepped Care Model to find out more.

One to One

We provide telephone advice and consultancy for tutors and others who would like to talk through their involvement in helping someone else. Such advice is confidential and may provide a second opinion on help or guidance being provided to a third party.

Training sessions run by the Counselling Service

There are also regular training sessions available for staff:
