Working with Self Harm and Suicide

It is a fact that most suicidal crises are time-limited and based on unclear thinking around a person’s desire to escape their problems. Self-harm is a behaviour and not an illness. A person may self-harm to cope with emotional distress. Offering that person a safe space to confront these problems and support them through this crisis period takes courage, skills, understanding and self-care. This course is designed to enhance understanding and confidence when supporting a person experiencing these mental health challenges whilst remembering to also look after yourself.
