Mind Your Mate

The SRC has launched this suicide prevention training programme to help empower all UofG students to support themselves and each other

The ‘Mind Your Mate’ training programme is a 3 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 students at the University of Glasgow.

Our student and staff trainers have been professionally trained and evaluated by a specialist mental health charity and have already delivered the training to over 200 staff and students at the University of Glasgow in the last year. Feedback from participants so far has been overwhelmingly positive and following the initial pilot period the workshops are now being offered to all students through open sessions.

To find out when our next sessions are, keep an eye on the GUSRC Facebook page.
