Self-harm and Suicide

Self-harm and suicide in children and young people are hugely distressing issues for everyone whose life they touch. They are scary and it’s incredibly hard to think about how to handle these issues for the best. The emotions they stir in us can often mean knowing what to do in the moment is even tougher.


Our two hour workshop for parents and professionals will help you think about why children and young people turn to self-harm. We will offer support and practical advice so you can go away feeling more confident and empowered to keep your child as safe as you can.

Within this two-hour workshop, delegates will learn:

  • Possible reasons behind self-harm and suicidal ideation in children and young people.
  • Information on causes, effects and current research on self-harm and suicidal ideation.
  • How to identify the warning signs and assess the risk of self-harm and suicidal ideation.
  • Strategies on how to support children and young people who turn to self-harm and have suicidal thoughts.
