What is Non-Medical Help (NMH)?

NMH is the term used to describe support workers who provide services to students with disabilities.  Any student with a mental health problem, long term illness or any other disability can access the Government’s Disabled Student’s Allowance (DSA). This fund covers any NMH support a student may need in order to undertake their course.

“It’s great to work at a university that I am a former student of; to relate to the students more. Amano is very supportive and I also love the regular CPD and coffee morning opportunities!”

Professional development alongside colleagues.

Amano offers all of its consultants Continued Professional Development (CPD) on topical inclusivity themes facing society (and particularly students) today, such as mental health, hate crime awareness and identity psychology.
