Concerned about your child’s mental health? Has your child self-harmed? Help is on hand for you…
Understanding Young Minds – free online course for Parents – Virtual College have worked in partnership with SelfharmUK to create a free online course designed to help parents talk about the issue of self-harm with their children.
Thousands of children and young people in the UK are thought to be impacted by self-harm each year. Spotting the signs can be difficult, and approaching the subject with your children can be an uncomfortable experience. 60% of parents feel uncomfortable discussing self-harm with their children.
This course will help you to:
- Know what self-harm is and why young people may do it
- Know what makes young people vulnerable to self-harming behaviour
- Understand in what ways you can support a young person who is self-harming
