Mental Health and Wellbeing Courses for PGR Supervisors (on Canvas)


The University Mental Health and Wellbeing Team developed three health and wellbeing courses for staff across the University who provide a pastoral role or who are student facing such as PGR and personal supervisors. 

  • 'Supporting the Distressed Student' (Canvas course)* (UOH) 

*This course is now mandatory for Personal (and PGR) Supervisors. You will be enrolled automatically at the start of the 2022/23 academic year. The course is open access so you can access it at a time that is suitable for you.  Here is the link to the current Learning and Development page for this course.

 To view and book onto these Canvas courses, please visit the Learning and Development Health and Wellbeing SharePoint pages for more information. The courses run over each trimester (open for 6 weeks) and are asynchronous so you can work through at your pace with plenty of time to complete.  To reserve a place on these courses, please complete the booking form on the University Support Portal. ​
