Talking about suicide
A guide for university staff
This guide was written in response to teaching staff raising concerns about student suicide and not always feeling well equipped to respond. It was originally developed through a partnership between the Association of Colleges and the Charlie Waller Trust and has been endorsed by Universities UK and Papyrus. 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 university community to talk openly about suicide, know what to do in any given situation and help to keep everyone safe in challenging times.
