Self Harm Advice For Parents

Recent research indicates that up to one in ten young people in the UK engage in self-harming behaviours, and that this figure is higher amongst specific populations, including young people with special educational needs. School staff can play an important role in preventing self-harm and also in supporting students, peers and parents currently engaging in self-harm.

We have 3 documents to support parents and students with this issue.
