Mind Your Mate - GUVMA Workshop, University Of Glasgow Veterinary School, Friday, 22. February 2019

The ‘Mind Your Mate’ training programme is a three-hour interactive workshop covering basic mental health awareness and ******* prevention skills. The overall aim of Mind Your Mate is to reduce the barriers preventing people from accessing the help they need, provide participants with the confidence and skills to help someone in crisis and reduce the stigma around discussing mental health and *******. Mind Your Mate forms part of the SRC’s commitment to increasing opportunities for students to access peer-led early-intervention support and participants have included staff and students who:• wanted to learn more about mental health and ******* in case they do come in contact with someone at risk• were already concerned about someone in their lives• were concerned about themselves• hold a position or role where they came in contact with people who may have been at higher risk, including committee members of clubs and socs.Our student and staff trainers have been professionally trained and evaluated by a specialist mental health charity and have already delivered the training to over 200 staff and students at the University of Glasgow in the last year. Feedback from participants so far has been overwhelmingly positive and following the initial pilot period the workshops are now being offered to all students through open sessions.**The workshop will be taking place in the MSB Seminar Room from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, with training delivered by Dr Zamantha Marshall (Lecurer in Veterinary Science & Education) and Fatemeh Nokhbeh (SRC VP Student Support) **
