Helping someone else
If you know someone struggling with their mental health, there are lots of things you can do.
Are you worried about someone:
- Feeling suicidal? Many of us can be hesitant to talk about suicide, but saying something is safer than saying nothing. The University’s It’s Safe to Talk about Suicide leaflet has advice about what to do if you are worried about someone, as well as tips on how to talk about suicide and links to support organisations. Relias and the Zero Suicide Alliance offer free online training on talking about suicide. The session takes around 30 minutes to complete. The NHS webpages have details for urgent support.
- Experiencing Domestic Abuse? It is important for all colleagues to be aware of potential signs that a colleague is suffering from domestic abuse. Our support page details these signs and where to get help.
- Experiencing an Eating Disorder? Explore our information and recommended support surrounding Eating Disorders.
