Students in Distress Information BookletFrom time to time members of staff may encounter students who are very distressed. Quite often the distressed student may be under performing academically. Some students may try to mask their distress by attributing academic under performance to some other cause.

Irrespective of whether the case is minor or severe, dealing with the distressed student requires some simple skills, and a knowledge of where you can refer the student for specific help.

The health and welfare of students is everyone's concern. It is important to be prepared for emergencies, but you should be aware that they occur very rarely and expert help is available.

Please view the Students in Distress Information Booklet  for more information.
