SRC "Mind Your Mate" Suicide Prevention Open Sessions

Published: 9 August 2018

The Students' Representative Council is inviting applications to its "Mind Your Mate" suicide prevention sessions.

The ‘Mind Your Mate’ training programme is a three-hour interactive workshop covering basic mental health awareness and suicide prevention skills.

The overall aim of "Mind Your Mate" is to reduce the barriers preventing people from accessing the help they need, provide participants with the confidence and skills to help someone in crisis and reduce the stigma around discussing mental health and suicide.

"Mind Your Mate" forms part of the SRC’s commitment to increasing opportunities for students to access peer-led, early-intervention support and training.

The workshops are free and open to all staff and students at the University of Glasgow.

Our next open sessions are taking place on the 20 and 21 August – register your place here now!

Our student and staff trainers have been professionally trained by a specialist mental health charity. The workshops have already been delivered to hundreds of staff and students at the University of Glasgow in the last year - feedback from participants so far has been overwhelmingly positive!
