face-to-face | 1 Hour - In-house training | Your school

Course description

This is an in-house training. To enquire about booking this training for your school please email the course leader.


Self-harm is not a mental health problem within itself but indicative of an underlying mental health problem. Young people may self-harm for a number of reasons, but primarily it is known as a way people cope with acute periods of adversity and feel in control when everything else feels out of control.


The training aims to explore: -


  • What is self-harm and how it is defined
  • Why young people self-harm and what do they gain from this
  • How to care for young people who self-harm and help them cope in other ways
  • CAMHS and MCC Pathway to support young people who self-harm
  • Provision in school for safeguarding pupils
  • Further support for staff and pupils
