Please note: The main content of this webinar is the same as the Supporting Students with Mental Health Issues during Exams seminar offered at the Communicate-ed Conference in September 2021. We have received such positive feedback from the conference seminar that we have decided to make the session more widely available. If you watched the seminar as part of the Conference, you are welcome to book the webinar as well, but please be advised the content will be the same, but with an additional Q&A at the end.
