The Aim Of The Training Session Is To Help Participants:

 

  • Understand the social model of disability, which underpins UK rights legislation.
     
  • Learn how to develop personal confidence in understanding and discussing disability (people living with physical disabilities and long term illnesses including mental health conditions) and be more self-aware about how their own experience comes to bear on this.
     
  • Learn how to support staff and students who are experiencing mental health difficulties.
     
  • Work together to develop a practical action plan to help themselves and each other approach actual and potential challenges around disability and mental health in future.
     
  • Outline a number of practical measures that can be made to increase opportunities for disclosure and provide targeted and anticipatory support, such as peer-to-peer mentoring/coaching.
     
  • Learn how to provide an inclusive environment.
