Content note: suicide

Our Welfare Forums are aimed at Welfare reps on the J/MCR or in societies, but any interested student is welcome to come along.


During this forum, we’ll be discussing how the ongoing suicide prevention action plan and policy formulated by the University will affect your college. We’ll also be discussing what suicide prevention measures you would like to see across the university. We will ask people not to share detailed or specific information that relates to particular instances, but instead we will keep the conversation broad so as not to be too upsetting. You will be free to leave at any time.

There will be a member of the Cambridge SU Student Advice Service attending in a supportive role to ensure the welfare of everyone at the meeting is considered. 

The agenda will be shared on this event nearer the time. 


The structure of the event: this will be a relaxed discussion and you are free to leave at any time. There will be light refreshments for a variety of dietary requirements (vegan, gluten free) but get in contact if you have other dietary needs. The discussion will likely not last beyond an hour, and there will be an access break halfway through.
