Open Workshops for Students

The SRC has some open workshops coming up relating to suicide prevention and gender-based violence

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

First is Mind Your Mate,  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.

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

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 students at both universities wanting to do something to tackle sexual violence, building on student activism such as the Let’s Talk campaign. The workshop includes the impacts of sexual violence, consent, what it means, what the law says and practising it, bystander intervention, how to safely and comfortably intervene and where to find support.
