Mind Your Mate

Mental Health Awareness and Suicide Prevention Training

IMPORTANT: Due to ongoing restrictions these workshops will be delivered online, via Zoom, until changes are made to government guidance.

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

The programme forms part of GUSRC’s aim to build a community of Mental Health Champions, reduce stigma surrounding mental health, and cut down barriers that prevent students from accessing the help and support they need.

Topics covered include:

  • The core of suicide prevention 
  • Myths and facts around suicide 
  • Emotional resilience
  • Active listening skills 
  • Looking after your own mental health

Workshops are free and open for all university students and staff to attend.  All successful participants will receive a completion certificate, signed-off by the University’s Chief Operating Officer, acknowledging their status as a university Mental Health Champion.

To find out when our next open sessions are, please keep an eye on our Glasgow Student Events Hub.
