Many universities are taking steps to ensure their campus communities are better equipped to support vulnerable students by creating initiatives designed to look after their well-being and reduce the risk of suicide. These efforts can include providing counselling services, implementing early warning systems, offering online resources and screenings, promoting awareness campaigns around mental health issues, or developing crisis response protocols.

At the same time, much work remains to be done to create truly safe and supportive learning environments for all students. Universities must continue their efforts to protect students from harm and take a proactive approach by creating an environment in which mental health issues are openly discussed and destigmatised.
