Helping someone else
If you know someone struggling with their mental health, there are lots of things you can do. Find out how you can help and support them on the NHS Every Mind Matters web pages, including if they are worried or anxious about coronavirus (COVID-19) and how to help someone with depression.
Resources for managers
- The Leadership and Management in the "New Normal" web pages have resources and information to support managers to manage teams during the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The Managing Mental Health and Stress Standard sets out processes for managing stress at the University and links to relevant resources and support.

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. The NHS webpages have details for urgent support.
