What if I have questions?

For questions regarding the mental health of the person you’re supporting we recommend contacting the person’s GP or mental health professional. You may find it helpful to take along a print out of the module page with you. Other things you could do include:

  • raising it in clinical supervision
  • contacting ADHC or other agency
  • speaking with your local psychiatrist
  • discussing it with a colleague to seek clarification

If you have questions regarding the site please contact 3DN.

What if I have feedback?

We want your feedback, because we want to make the site as good as it can be at meeting your learning needs!

There will be an opportunity to give feedback at the end of each module, and we hope that you take a few moments to send it through. Otherwise you can always email us.
