Mental Health and wellbeing for children and young people

We want to assist people through the process of supporting a child or young person who may be at risk of self-harm or suicide.

We want people to recognise the importance of:

  • prevention
  • early intervention, and
  • harm minimisation.

Young people need a sensitive, calm and non judgemental response to help them contain their distress and give them an opportunity to work through that distress to find solutions.

We have self-harm guidlines for professionals, parents and young people to help through the proccess of supporting a child or young person who may be at risk of self-harm or suicide.
