Types of NMH
- Specialist one-to-one study skills support is non-subject specific and helps students to develop skills and strategies aimed at promoting independent learning.
- Specialist Mentor support is designed to offer strategies for independent learning to people with mental health issues and/or Autistic Spectrum Conditions. It is non-subject specific academic support combined with an in-depth understanding of mental health and/ASCs.
- Assistive technology training is to provide a substantial programme of training for the student in how to use the range of assistive technology and specialist software or hardware, in relation to their studies. This support is time limited.
