Webinar: Understanding and supporting self-harm
Self-harm is a common problem: recent mental health statistics* suggest that 1 in 12 young people are deliberately harming themselves, with 25,000 hospitalisations each year as a result. Young people from all walks of life can be affected. It’s also a difficult topic to talk about and can be hard for others to understand. So how can we best support pupils who self-harm?
In this webinar, Pooky Knightsmith will give practical, accessible guidance on identifying and supporting pupils who self-harm or who are at risk of self-harming and on developing whole-school initiatives.
The webinar will address:
- what self-harm is and the types we might encounter
- why people turn to self-harm
- triggers and warning signs
- how to respond to and support pupils who self-harm.
