In 2017 the University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church University came together to work on the Suicide-Safer Communities project. This project to make both universities suicide safer has since been an institutional priority for both organisations. Suicide prevention is complex and no one approach will have all the answers and solutions that we would all wish for. However, by joining our resources and knowledge together we are working to ensure that our students are offered the support and understanding that is needed in this most emotive and complex area of student support and wellbeing. Since 2017 the partnership has naturally grown and it now works with other universities and FE Colleges in the local area, the NHS and external support organisations to develop effective prevention, intervention and postvention policies and practices.
