You will receive session access details upon successful booking.

Harmless have been commissioned by a joint collaboration between Cheshire & Merseyside Health and Care Partnership and Champs Public Health Collaborative to deliver level 3 self-harm training. There are two courses available to attend – one is a Children & Young People course, and the other is a Mixed Adult and Children & Young People course.

Please note:

The target audience for this training is public-facing frontline staff across any service who work with those who are at risk of self-harm or are self-harming. The course will help those who feel that being equipped with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to respond effectively to individuals experiencing thoughts of or who are self-harming will be beneficial to them in performing their role.

This particular date is our Children & Young People’s course. This means there will be a heavy focus on self-harm in the context of young people. There are mixed courses available if you work with all ages, adults/older adults.
