Self Harm & Suicide Awareness in Children & Young People

“Self-harm is more common than many people realise, especially among younger people. It's estimated around 10% of young people self-harm at some point, but people of all ages do. This figure is also likely to be an underestimate, as not everyone seeks help.”
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/self-harm/

“Self harm is difficult to accurately estimate, but the highest number of admissions to hospital for self harm is in the 15-25 year old age group” (Self Harm in Kingston Annual Public Health Report, H. Raison, 2014) http://www.kingstonccg.nhs.uk/Mental%20Health%20Strategy.pdf

Mental illness affects around 25% of the adult population at some point in their lives, and is more common among those with dependent children.

This course will develop a practitioner’s ability to assess and meet the needs of children in families where parental mental illness is a feature. This training is delivered by a consultant trainer with experi ...

Depression rates in children and young people have increased by 70% in the last 25 years (Royal College of Psychiatrists, 2016). It is important that those working with children and young people know the signs to look out ...
