At 4 Mental Health, we understand the on-going challenges facing colleges and universities, to provide a safe, consistent and supportive environment to both students and staff, as well as the financial and logistic limitations of student mental health services.
We offer education providers a strategic, ‘whole-community’, safe-guarding framework for mental health awareness, self-harm and suicide prevention, as recommended in the Universities UK’s ‘Suicide - Safer Universities’ report.
We’re delighted that our approach resulted in the University of Wolverhampton winning a Times Higher Education Award for ‘Outstanding Support of Students’ in 2016. The university’s ‘3 Minutes to Save a Life’ initiative solely uses our Connecting with People training modules.
Our compassionate, holistic and collaborative approach is sympathetic to the specific circumstances and challenges associated with student care, with modules providing essential life skills to improve student and staff mental wellbeing. All of our modules combine compassion and governance to improve emotional resilience, increase empathy, reduce stigma and enhance staff ability to provide a safe, compassionate and appropriate response to students experiencing suicidal thoughts and/or self-harm.
We offer a number of Connecting with People modules, designed to embed knowledge of best practice and meet identified training objectives for real-life impact and improvement of individual and organisational working practices.
