Mental health issues

Mental health can be a particularly difficult area. Problems include anxiety, obsessive behaviour, Students sitting outsidedepression, self-harm etc. Symptoms may not be obvious and are often difficult to interpret. A general rule for Tutors is therefore to encourage any student about whom they have concerns (or who is himself or herself concerned) to see a GP or counsellor. If a Tutor has serious concerns, for example about student self-harm, harm to others or lack of rootedness in 'reality', it is advisable to consult before deciding how best to handle the situation, including the referral.
