Learn to save a life

By Adrian 22 Sep 2022

Suicide prevention training for students

The University of London is working with Thrive LDN and London Higher to host two free online events for higher education staff and students across London to promote the #ZeroSuicideLDN campaign around World Suicide Prevention Day (10th September) and World Mental Health Day (10th October).

The session is open to any student studying at a London university and attendees will receive a certificate on completion of the training.

The session will provide the opportunity to access free training and resources that could help you to support a peer, friend or total stranger who might be in crisis. You'll learn how to approach conversations around mental health and suicide and access further support and resources should you need to. There will also be the opportunity to hear from student and mental health support organisations and have your questions answered.


  • Date:    Wednesday 12th October
  • Time:    2pm to 3pm
  • Place:    Online
