Support for Parents and Carers of a Young Person who Self-Harms

We understand that supporting someone who self-harms, can be really daunting. Self-harm can be very complex and we understand families may need support and reassurance.

This new service will provide a safe, supportive environment in a non-clinical setting, for those who are supporting someone who self-harms. Attendees are able to share their experience, their thoughts and meet others who are also supporting their loved ones. The service will help attendees understand self-harm, support conversation and to manage their wellbeing. We will be offering a variety of different mindfulness activities, along with resources for both parties relevant to their needs.
