Self-harm- Bite-size via ZOOM
13/08/2020 10:00 am - 10:30 am
During this time, it may be a lot harder for young people who self-harm as their parents may be working from home and they may feel as though they have no alone time in their room to harm themselves.
As they do not have their normal routine or daily distraction, their worries and concerns may increase and being in isolation with no routine could be a trigger. This bite-size session on self-harm is aimed at anyone caring for, or looking after children and young people who want to understand more about a child’s self-harm. There will be a focus on why young people may self-harm, and an emphasis made on self-harm is a behaviour, not a mental health illness. Positive strategies will be explored for adults to use with children and young people along with helpful apps, tips and resources on how you can promote aspects of resilience from this.
