In the UK, around 10–13% of young people are known to actively self-harm. However, for many, disclosure is made harder by the fear of misunderstanding and the myths and stigma that remain around this issue. As professionals, we can often be unsure of how to respond in light of disclosure, fearing we will do or say the wrong thing. This one-day training course is ideal for those who would like to develop an understanding of adolescent mental health as well as the skills to confidently respond and support young people around the issue of self-harm and suicide.
Participants will learn about adolescent development and the signs and symptoms of mental health problems, where and how to get help and what sort of help has been shown by research to be effective.
This training is a must for any professional working with children or young people and their families, parents or carers. It’s suitable for various settings and either group or 1:1 dynamics.
