Beyond the Books

Date and Time


UC 442


Beyond the Books is a face to face session that will first provide participants with general information on the prevalence of mental challenges and illness. It will then help participants to identify signs of troubling behaviour and give them skills to engage in a preliminary discussion to determine if referral to a professional is necessary.  Participants will also learn how and where to refer appropriately in a compassionate and effective manner. This session is designed for individuals who do not have ongoing relationships with individuals but whose roles are such that they may have one-off, in-depth conversations.

Recommended for: Individuals who may be in positions to see behaviour and have conversations with students, but have no responsibility for the individuals, nor involved in regularly addressing mental health issues.  Examples include: Custodians, Hospitality Staff, Instructors (faculty, TA’s, and Sessionals), Administrative Assistants, Residence Desk Staff and Porters.

Registration: Sign up through the HR Learning and Development Calendar
