Self Harm Support Hub now launched
Updated: Aug 2
The emotional and psychological implications of self-harm can be overwhelming, and many carers and professionals may feel unsure of how best to support someone who self-harms.
The self-harm support hub is a centralized resource for parents, carers and professionals who support young people who self-harm. The hub provides information and resources on the most effective ways to support young people who engage in self-harm, including evidence-based strategies for prevention and intervention. This includes information on the different types of self-harm, warning signs to look out for, and practical tips for supporting a young person who is self-harming.
One of the unique features of the self-harm support hub is the access to peer support where parents, carers and professionals could connect with one another to share experiences, advice, and support. This provides a valuable opportunity for carers and professionals to learn from one another, exchange ideas, and build a supportive network.
In the coming months, the self-harm support hub will also offer a range of educational resources, such as webinars and training modules. These resources re designed to equip professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively support young people who self-harm.
