Do I tell their School?

I don't know if I should tell my son's School that he is self-harming? Any advice? Thanks, worried parent x

    I have had positive experience of asking my child's school for help they have 2 counsellors experienced in supporting children who self harm have given her a couple of alternative suggestions to cutting that inflict pain without breaking the skin and arranged to talk to her weekly or more frequently if she wants.

  • i am so glad i did tell my child's school - as loads of other parents then rang in as their children had told them about mine self-harming; it was awful but i know they were doing it as they were so concerned. School were great and managed to get CAMHS to fast track an appointment and sorted out a school counsellor.
    telling school definitely helped.
