Mental Well-being Guidance and Resources

We all have times in our lives when our mental well-being takes a hit. We might experience stress, burnout or sadness. In more serious situations, we may experience mental health issues or a mental illness.

When someone we know shows signs that they are having difficulties maintaining their mental well-being or mental health, it can be difficult to know what to do to help. As a tutor, you are not expected to provide any form of counselling to a learner who is experiencing issues with their mental health or well-being.

If you have any concerns for your learner or yourself, you should always contact the LU office. We are here to help and provide guidance.

In addition, here are some links to resources, tool-kits, and information you or your learner might find useful:
