Discussing Sensitive Issues
The Discussing Sensitive Issues document forms part of the Response Ability resources.
Sometimes discussion of topics that relate to mental health and wellbeing may raise sensitive issues, including trauma, grief and loss, child abuse, mental illness or distressing life experiences.
Discussing Sensitive Issues provides some suggestions and practical strategies for managing the discussion of sensitive issues with students. It also provides useful information about identifying support options for people who experience distress or mental health difficulties.
