Self Harm

Self Harm

Self-harm is when you intentionally harm yourself as a way of dealing with difficult feelings or experiences. 


School Support

School is able to offer support through:

  • Bespoke 1:1 support in school.
  • HOPE session (FASST Team)
  • Referral to specialist services if appropriate.


Self Harm Support for Families

People self-harm for many different reasons, and in many different ways. The reason or way they self-harm may be different each time too. And sometimes they may self-harm but not realise until afterwards. Supporting someone who self harms can be very difficult and challenging and it is important to recognise that. Knowing that someone you care about is in emotional distress can create many feelings including fear, anger, frustration, helplessness and sadness.We have a dedicated carers support service where we offer  information to give the best possible advice in supporting your loved one.

Self Harm Support for Young People

Self-harm can affect us in lots of different ways.

You might have self-harmed before, be thinking about self-harm, or wanting to support someone else who is self-harming. You might have also heard people talking about self-harm but aren’t sure what it means.

Self-harm can be hard to talk about because it can be linked to emotions we don’t know how to voice. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

We’re here to help you understand self-harm, and explain what help and support is available to you.
