The diagram on the left is not an exhaustive list of causes for emotional distress, however it does encompass some of the most common factors that contribute to distress in students.

While you may not be able to solve all the issues or problems contributing to the student’s distress, however, understanding what the cause of their distress is can help guide your responses and inform your decision as to which type of support may be beneficial for the student.
