Supporting Students and Staff with Mental Health Disorders [ref. TG2/SUPP]
The aim of this event is to provide examples of case studies on how libraries and the information sector can support the mental health and wellbeing of students and staff, to provide attendees with the chance to share examples of good practice as well as provide a forum of discussion on disability, mental health, specific learning difficulties and student welfare.
This event is ideal for any library staff or student services staff who have disability support as part of their role or are interested in the area of libraries and the information sector’s support and services for students and staff with mental health disorders.
