ADCET Webinar: Managing complex and challenging mental health situations
This ADCET webinar, presented by Brandon Taylor (Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategy Manager, TAFE Queensland), focused on the small number of instances where a student’s mental ill health is so disruptive to their thinking, thoughts and/or behaviours that they are unable to engage and participate in their chosen courses. The session worked through what this behaviour can look like and how best to manage situations where there is a lack of progress and/or unacceptable behaviour relating to mental ill health.
Audience: This webinar is suitable for educators and faculty administration staff.
