Universities UK – Responding to a suicide: advice for universities

At ProtectED, we welcome the new guidance by Universities UK and PAPYRUS (Prevention of Young Suicide's) on responding to a suicide: advice for universities.

We have always advocated for a student centred whole university approach, to wellbeing, safety and security. As part of of our Code of Practice published in 2017, we have required universities to have a full protocol in place covering everything from the formation of a postvention committee, to polices around holding a memorial service, it is good to see that the new guidance from Universities UK, covers all the same aspects as we do, I hope universities put this comprehensive plan in place, it would give them a great start if they were to become a ProtectED Member, you can read the full guidance - Responding to a suicide: advice for universities here.
