If you see someone in distress or at risk of suicide, do you know how to help?
There have probably been times when you've noticed a friend or a student in your classes who seems to be in distress. You may have worried about them, but you didn't know how to help them, or whether you can or should do anything about it.
Many students experience a range of mental health issues, from depression and anxiety to risk of self-harm or suicide. These are difficult issues to deal with if you are someone's friend, advisor, or instructor. Our workshops can help.
Health & Counselling offers workshops on how to recognize distress and/or suicide risk, and can help you learn to recognize when it's time to refer students to seek out mental health support.
Do you have concerns about your own mental health?
Please note that these sessions are designed to educate on how you can help others, and are not therapy. If you are seeking help for yourself, SFU is here to support you.
