Father of student who killed himself at Bristol University to unveil his suicide prevention pledge at Festival of Higher Education

Businessman James Murray, whose son Ben tragically died last month, has drawn up a ten-point plan to try to get universities to change the way they treat youngsters struggling on campus.
He has been working with Bristol University and also leading mental health campaigner Sir Anthony Seldon, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Buckingham as well as Universities UK, to try to get something done.
The suicide prevention pledge will be unveiled on Thursday morning at the second day of the Festival of Higher Education in a session on mental health with Sir Anthony and author Nancy Tucker, just prior to Universities Minister Sam Gyimah speaking.
