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:
- 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.
