UCL Student Support and Wellbeing, together with The Samaritans, is offering this session which is open to all staff at UCL involved in supporting students.

This session will:

  • raise awareness and understanding of issues that can lead to suicidal thoughts or self-harm 
  • explore 'warning signs' of suicide and depression 
  • share best practice on approaching individuals who may suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts 

After this session you will

  • understand the facts and myths around depression, suicide and self-harm 
  • know the best practice approach to disclosures of depression, suicide and self-harm 
  • know where to refer students and what pathways are available to students

You should attend if you are a member of UCL staff who has any contact with students.

Personal Tutors will find this session particularly useful.
