Talking about suicide

A guide for college staff

This guide was written in response to teaching staff raising concerns about student suicide and not always feeling well equipped to respond. Originally developed through a partnership between the Association of Colleges and the Charlie Waller Trust, it was written by members of the Charlie Waller team who are experts in the field – Dr Andrew Reeves, Kirsten Amis, Kath Caffrey – and reviewed by Prof. Keith Hawton at the Centre for Suicide Research.

We hope it will build capacity and confidence in the whole college community to talk openly about suicide, know what to do in any given situation and help to keep everyone safe in challenging times.

This guide was developed in partnership with the Association of Colleges (AoC)
