Mental Health with your VP Education and Welfare
Monday 18 January 2021
2pm - 3pm
Content warning: this session is focused on suicide-prevention and will discuss sensitive topics around Mental Health.
Mental Health conditions are more common than we realise, with a reported 78% of students experiencing Mental Health issues and less than half seeking support. The suicide rate for under 25s has increased by 93.8% since 2012, to its highest level in 2019. This year, we are facing a particularly difficult situation, with many people isolated from others and uncertain of what lies ahead. It is important, more so now than ever, that we know how to support those who are struggling.
This session aims to give you the skills and confidence to spot the signs of Mental Health issues, offer first aid and guide someone towards getting the help they need. We won’t teach you how to become a therapist, but we will teach you to listen, reassure and respond, even in a crisis – and even potentially stop a crisis from happening.
