SRC Open Workshops For Students

Published: 22 October 2018

Join the Students' Representative Council for workshops focused on suicide prevention and tackling gender-based violence.

As part of the SRC's commitment to increasing opportunities for students, free places are available to all UofG students on two of the SRC’s peer-led, early-intervention support and training programmes.

Mind Your Mate

First is Mind Your Mate, 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.

To find out when the next sessions are and to sign up, book your space via the Mind Your Mate Eventbrite.

Let's Talk About Sexual Violence

Next is Let’s Talk about Sexual Violence, a student-led initiative in partnership with Rape Crisis Scotland and a collaboration between the Glasgow University Students’ Representative Council and Glasgow Caledonian University. It was born from the determination of students at both universities to do something to tackle sexual violence, building on student activism such as the Let’s Talk campaign.

The 90-minute workshop covers:

  • The impacts of sexual violence
  • Consent and what it means, including what the law says and practising it
  • Bystander intervention, including how to safely and comfortably intervene
  • Where to find support.

To find out when the next sessions are and to sign up, book your space via the Let's Talk about Sexual Violence Eventbrite.
