Understanding Self-Harm workshop (online)

Self-Injury Awareness Day (SIAD) is a global event held annually on March 1. Its purpose is to remove the stigma attached to self-injury and to encourage parents, family members, educators, and healthcare professionals to recognize the signs of self-harm.

To coincide with SIAD, this two hour workshop focuses on an area in which we are frequently asked for further information and support.  We recommend this workshop to parents, teachers and anyone interested in learning more about this important subject.

The session will be a mixture of presentations, Q&A and the sharing of thoughts and experiences. The course will be facilitated by two Mental Health First Aid instructors.

The programme will include the following:

  • What is self-harm?
  • Self-harm facts/information
  • Risk Factors
  • Warning Signs
  • Listening Skills
  • Support and Resources
