This course is designed to remove some of the many misconceptions that people have surrounding disability, and give delegates communication tools, leading techniques (the best and most common ways to lead a blind person) and the confidence to deal with disabled people in the right way.

This course is open to all staff, in particular those who work with students.

You will learn about some of the factors which lead to the development of mental health difficulties, how to respond appropriately to individuals who are exhibiting signs of distress and also what you can do to improve your own mental health.
