This training session will explore why some students gamble and the different types of gambling and gaming. We will discuss the impact on the student’s mental wellbeing and the tools and strategies you can utilise in order to provide help and support. We will look at the helpline support available and alternative resources that can be drawn upon.
There will be plenty of time for a Q&A session where you can put your questions to the trainer and the other college staff at the session.
This session will be led by Alex Cochrane, a mental health trainer with the Charlie Waller Trust and chaired by Richard Caulfield, North West Area Director, Association of Colleges and policy lead for mental health and wellbeing.
