Want to learn how to help this self-harm day?
If you work in any capacity with young people, the likelihood is that if you haven’t already, before long you will find yourself in a conversation with a young person who self-injures. How will you respond? Do you know enough about the issue to direct them to help?
It is now believed that one in ten young people deliberately self-harm in some way. Hospital admissions for children and young people have increased by a shocking 68% over the last 10 years and statistics clearly show that recorded cases are on the rise.
For many young people self-harm is a lonely and often misunderstood epidemic surrounded by myth and stigma. Nearly all cases of recovery start with a young person disclosing their behaviour to someone they trust and so we need to be ready to know how to help.
As a teacher, parent, youth worker or professional working in any capacity with young people it’s essential you equip yourself with the skills to deal with this complicated and delicate issue.
At Selfharm.co.uk, we offer various training packages to give you a deeper understanding of the issues around self-harm and develop the skills to know how to help practically.
We can offer anything from smaller 3 hour regional sessions through to larger bespoke training days for organisations. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or CLICK HERE to see if there’s an upcoming event near you.
