Young people can practice self-harming behaviours for different reasons and at different points in time. Self-harm can be hard to recognise and isn't a mental health diagnosis in its own right, which can add to the difficulty and sensitivity in understanding it.
As part of WIMS Live 2021, we're hosting a webinar which aims to support teachers and school staff to spot the signs of when a student or young person in their classroom might be self-harming and to know how to respond.
The event takes place at 11am on 4 October. Speakers will include Sinead Raftery of Pieta, who will speak about how to approach students you think may be self-harming and what to do if a student approaches you about it. Dr Susan Healy of St Patrick's Mental Health Services will also explain what self-harm is and how we can better understand self-harming behaviours.
